E44 -- De infinitis curvis eiusdem generis seu methodus inveniendi aequationes pro infinitis curvis eiusdem generis
(On infinite(ly many) curves of the same type, that is, a method of finding equations for infinite(ly many) curves of the same type)
It was probably presented to
the St. Petersburg Academy before July 12, 1734.
