I do not wish to prolong this unpleasant discussion, and will, therefore, confine myself to one or two remarks:–
I am sorry if Askew felt hurt at anything in my letter. The fact is a quasi-philosophical controversy of this sort is very difficult to render accurately in another language, and it is no disparagement of Askew if I express the view that in my humble judgment he has not quite succeeded in all respects; or of Beer, if one suggests that in the work of comparison which he kindly undertook, he has, perhaps, through inadvertence, missed one or two of the finer nuances.
