Notes, topics or text 

"Thursday afternoon" [Perhaps began Theory of Knowledge yesterday.] "It all flows out.... " "There will be an introductory chapter, which I shall probably leave to the last—the first substantial chapter, which I have nearly finished, is called 'Preliminary Description of Experience' [The Monist, 24: Jan. 1914, 1-16]. Then I shall set to work to refute James's theory that there is no such thing as consciousness, then the idealist theory that there is nothing else. Then I shall classify cognitive relations to objects—sense, imagination, memory. Then I shall come on to belief, error, etc., then to inference; then finally to 'construction of the physical world'—time, space, cause, matter. If I go on on the scale on which I have begun, it will be quite a big book—500 pages of print I should think. It is all in my head, ready to be written as fast as my pen will go. I feel as happy as a King. If I write 10 pages a day it will take 50 days—so it should be nearly finished when you come home."
