ab: Summary: Following a brief critique of the wording of Lewis Carroll’s
{\it Alice’s adventures in wonderland}, this article offers some
supplementary remarks relating to the solution of a $3\times 3$
pseudo-magic square problem posed by Lewis Carroll, a generalisation of
the $3\times 3$ Lo-Su or luoshu magic square, the problem of installing
$m^{2} = 25$ or $m^{2} = 36$ officers of $m$ different ranks and $m$
different regiments in a $m\times m$ Graeco-Latin square (with apposite
remarks on the military career of Leonhard Euler’s third son and the
recent coinage of the Empress Maria Theresa) and a list of fourteen
portraits of mathematicians on banknotes paying particular attention to
those of Sir Isaac Newton and Florence Nightingale.
