[FOM] Questions on Cantor

I have not studied Cantor's texts, but from what I recall I have heard and
seen conflicting accounts as to how and whether he implicitly presupposed a
well-founded notion of sets. Could some please

(1) give textual evidence for him assuming i) well-foundedness, ii)
non-wellfoundedness and (perhaps) iii) full naivety,


(2) confirm textually that he presupposed extensionality?

Best regards from
