My dear Hen.
I have worked through, (& it is hard work) half of the 2dChapter on mind, & your corrections & suggestions are excellent.f2I have adopted the greater number, & I am sure that they are verygreat improvements.— Some of the transpositions are most just. Youhave done me real good service; but by Jove how hard you must haveworked & how thoroughily you have mastered my M.S. I am pleased withthis Chapter now that it comes fresh to me.—
Your affectionate, admiring & obedient | Father, C. D.
All is as clear as daylight— your plan of putting correctionssaves me a world of trouble, by just as much as it must have causedyou.— N.B. you can write, I see, a perfectly clear hand, asin all the corrections.—
