Dear Ms Robinson

Many thanks for your most readable pamphlet. [1] Its arrival pricked my conscience about the article. [2] I have not yet read it. The point is that I know that if I find what appear to me to be erroneous interpretations of doctrines which I hold dear I shall not be able to refrain from pointing them out to you. But you have forbidden me to do so. And I am very busy myself at the moment. However I shall read the article soon and try to refrain from "detailed" comment.
