Claims to have found the book 'admirably done and highly stimulating'. Quotes a passage in German from Kant, and states that 'in Ethics one requires a series of injunctions not merely the avoidance of speculative errors...' Announces that his mother came with him to Rome, and that they intend to return in ten days.
