ImprintLondon : [s.n.]. 1920
QuotationRecently I sent you two small books on Boehme, his confessions and another. I like his confessions. Unfortunately his work is so full of abstruse terminology borrowed from alchemy, etc., that I find it hard to follow him. But when I do make contact with his mind, I like his spirit very much indeed.
