WJ. Letter to Alice H. G. James. [Cambridge, 9 October 1876 ] Fragment; with incomplete M.L. (copy) in Alice H. G. James' hand containing additional passages. b MS Am 1092.9 (1163)

“My attitude towards Religion is one of deference rather than of adoption. I see its place; I feel that there are times when everything else must fail & that, or nothing, remain; and yet I behave as if I must leave it untouched until such times come, and I am driven to it by sheer stress of weather.”
