I do hate sums. There is no greater mistake than to call
arithmetic an exact science. There are hidden laws of number
which it requires a mind like mine to perceive. For instance,
if you add a sum from the bottom up, and then again from the
top down, the result is always different.

Your manuscript is both good and original. However, that which
is good is not original, and that which is original is not good.
I have made this letter longer than usual because I lack the
time to make it shorter.
