Eliot thanks BR for the requested letter, rendering his estate harmless after the transfer of funds. Vivien's father died and she has become heir of some lucrative property. Eliot believes this will equal the amount she has had to give up. He adds: "I have just read your little pamphlet on Christianity [Why I Am Not a Christian]. With some sadness. All the reasons you advance were familiar to me, I think, at the age of six or eight; and I confess that your pamphlet seems to me a piece of childish folly. But I was brought up as an atheist, and you were evidently brought up, and in my opinion remain, an evangelical. Why don't you stick to mathematics?"
