|Content Description||Replies to his letter explaining that he would have done a notice of 'Harbottle' ['A Modern Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which is to Come' by John Gordon Hargrave], but it is now too late; expresses an interest in the book; declares himself sick of the 'farce of cosmic unity, or world unison' which may exist in the abstract only but not elsewhere; goes on to expand on this theme: 'The spirit of place ultimately always triumphs'; is also 'sick to death' of the 'Jewish monotheistic string' and prefers the 'pagan many gods and the animistic vision'; reflects on the effect on him of living on the ranch at the foot of the Rockies and mixing with the Indians: 'what is it to me, world unison and peace and all that'; describes himself as 'essentially a fighter' and thus to wish him peace is bad luck.|
Cites the diverse places he has known that may never be unified; likens man to the different species of wild animals who all live in the hills around them 'in the unison of avoiding one another'; explains that to him life is to feel the 'white ideas and the "oneness" crumbling into a thousand pieces, and all sorts of wonder coming through'; although he cares little for 'all that stuff', is glad if 'White Fox and his K.K'ers' have a good time [Hargrave's title 'White Fox, Headman K.K.']; accepts the need to return to the older version of life but not for the sake of unison nor done from the 'will'; there should instead be a great yielding; advises him not to bother but accept what seems good and reject what seems repulsive; concludes 'To hell with stunts - when they cease to amuse'; signed 'D.H. Lawrence'
