Evidence

"Owing to his giving me the books, am now reading C by M. Baring. I am surprised to find it as good as it is. But how good is it? Easy to say it is not a great book. But what qualities does it lack? That it adds nothing to one"s vision of life, perhaps. Yet it is hard to find a serious flaw."
