I will thank a confirmation if the solution to “mate in two” shown in your
website is correct (I do not want the answer).
Additionally, I would greatly appreciate to know the author of this and the other problem (mate in three) that is really excellent.
Thank you very much,

White mates in two moves
As for the authors of both problems,
the above mate in two is credited to Thomas Taverner (Dubuque Chess
journal 1889, first prize) and the mate in three is credited to
Petsch-Manskopf (Leipziger Illustrierte Zeitung, 1899).
