Content DescriptionAddresses her 'Dear Katherine'; opens with reference to christianity; we should love 'the neighbour for that in which he is not me'; the English and Germans fight because they are different and they would be richer if they could allow their 'different ideals and establish a relationship'; 'if we were fundamentally all there, we would not have to assert ourselves so consciously and bloodily'.
