"As regards books, such a lot depends on what sort of life you are leading. I always relish Ingram"s terse epigrammatic style, but more especially when I am actively busy in mind and body - as during a company course. At such times I have no use for Westcott and his Euclid-like problems and theorems and theses and antitheses. At the present moment, however, my brain is in tune with Westcott. I have a fair amount of spare time, my work is not much brain-work, and I feel I need an exercise of the reason such as I find his books give. I am reading his ""Introduction to the Study of the Gospels"" at present, and I like it better than any other book of his I have read. He has such a splendidly broad view of everything, and while he observes the minutest details of his subject, he never seems to lose his sense of the whole. That is what is so rare among religionists. They either seem to concentrate all their powers on one little details, or else get such a very general view that, not understanding the composition, they do not understand the full importance or significance of their subject."
