First of all* just a word about the question you raise regarding
the insertion of a paragraph dealing with the arguments "pro and con for marriage,"
Tee, perhaps it would round out the discussion and urlng it into sharper focus if
ore done*
itbout the proof reading. I am now going over the IMS  a second time* Sometimes
the translation of a Latin phrase lias heen  Suggested and occasionally the omission
of English words the meaning of which would probably elude the general  reader,

I will try i        . s on its way in a day, or two.
How X am really gwing to stick my neck out mm at your 0091 kind invitation* I beg
to observe| In my humble opinion, one brief yet major addition to the present text
wonJ    atly enlxanoe'the value of the book as a whole, Shis iflatorial comes
the    uig "Cure of Melancholy *** against Sorrow for the Death of Friends or*
otherwise* vain Feat** I found this in my  own little copy of the Anaton^ (page 176)
which I am sending to you along with this letter, fhle passage moved me very deeply
but quite apart from any emotional response* 1 felt that it shed a new light on
Burton the man* as distinct from Democritus rearing his £&Sk, his calm acceptance
of the noble and austeroGreek point -of view seemed to be almost complete and* apart
from a plena plirape or two* he made no mention of "the sure and certain hope" that is
at the core of the Christian faith, wf course* tuis dichotomy is more or less manifest throughout the entire work but here it finds expression with more polgaanoy and
less detachment than elsewhere* And yet in I we find what the feench
call "the cry from theji heart*"   y not let Bemocritus drop his mask for once?
 Tour own approach to the Anc    is evidently m  different from the clumsy handling
inflicted on it hy  other commentators     1 am &ure you share my oxm  convictions
"Camerado, this is no book* who touches this* torches a man,"
Well* there it is* Tor -.hat it ma;    tirtfcj Except that I should like to tell
you what a consolation it lias heen to iiave bo  congenial a task to turn to during this
continuing period of anxiety.
