Notes, topics or text 

BR read her papers with great interest. He feels very uncertain on the whole subject of the external world. He can't agree with the "confident dogmatism" of the Six Realists. He is sorry she dislikes so many things in Principles of Mathematics", and hopes she would like PM better. *14 (Descriptions) and *20 (General Theory of Classes) are "the most important chapters" and "register a real advance in logic". They're explained in Chap. III of the Introduction. On the fundamentals of philosophy.
