Footnotes

A, who knows only French, publishes an article in an English magazine. At the end of the article are the following 3 footnotes:

1. I thank my friend B for translating the above article into English so that it could be published in this magazine.

2. I thank my friend B for translating the above footnote.

3. I thank my friend B for translating the above footnote.

Why are there only 3 footnotes when logically, A will have to go on forever to be able to thank B properly???
