Letters to Friend and Foe
You despatched me by means of our buddy De Vries, I now ship again to you via an analogous hand. a few few issues, as you will see that, i've got marked within the margin; yet but a couple of stay, which i've got judged it higher to say to you by way of letter. First, the place on web page four you supply the reader to understand on what get together I composed the 1st half; i'd have you ever likewise clarify there, or the place you please, that I composed it inside a fortnight.

For the remainder, to feign, to make delivers and holiday them, to lie, to swear falsely, and lots of such like practices name forth his optimum praises. while I had accomplished studying the e-book, I debated even if.
Resemble the typical mind's eye that God is masculine, no longer female. i'm wondering that these, who've visible bare ghosts, haven't solid their eyes on these components of the individual, which might eliminate all doubt; probably they have been timid, or didn't comprehend of this contrast. you'll say that this is often ridicule, now not reasoning: and for this reason I see, that your purposes seem to you so robust and well-founded, that nobody can (at least on your judgment) contradict them, until he be a few perverse fellow, who thinks.
