Evidence

"I wanted to write to you about Your book [...] you know how paralysed one is sometimes-- and then we had talked--I had tried to talk of the book so many times that it seemed to have become part of me, that part of belief amd thought so intimate that it cannot be put into speech as if it cannot live apart from one coherent self."

Notes
The nature of Conrad's reaction to this book is unclear from the evidence here. In an earlier letter to Galsworthy's sister Mabel Reynolds 5th September 1900 Conrad comments that the story ""The Cosmopolitan"" (later to appear as ""A Knight"" ) is 'in the clearness of the idea superior to the ""Villa""'. The overall tone of the letter to Galsworthy suggest some reluctance to comment.
