Frege Arithmetic and "Everyday Mathematics"

Abstract
The purpose of this note is to demonstrate that predicative Frege arithmetic naturally interprets some weak but non-trivial arithmetical theories. The weak theories in question are all related to Tarski, Mostowski, and Robinson's R. In saying that the interpretation is "natural", I mean that it relies only upon "definitions" of arithmetical notions that are themselves "natural", that is, that have some claim to be "definitions" in something other than a purely formal sense.
