"Wed. aft." "I had a pleasant 2 hours with Mrs. Whitehead yesterday—Whitehead got blood-poisoning from influenza but is now better—he was very bad.... I didn't see him as he was at University College."
"My Theory of Knowledge consists of three parts, Acquaintance, Judgment, Inference. Acquaintance consists of two divisions, Particulars and Universals. I finished Particulars the day before yesterday, and have now begun on Universals, which are harder.* So one may reckon I have done a sixth of the book; but I think really it is more nearly a quarter. Wittgenstein came to see me last night with a refutation of the theory of judgment which I used to hold. He was right, but I think the correction required is not very serious. I shall have to make up my mind within a week, as I shall soon reach judgment."
*Acquaintance with particulars extends through Ch. VI, and that with universals occupies Chs. VII-IX, of Part I.
