Hebrew Scholar. Four pages, 4to, good condition. He has been looking at a manuscript written by his correspondent on a theological subject. He criticises it, suggesting "expunging" one passage if he considers publication, and arguing with some of the biblical interpretation ("reign over the saints on a renewed earth . . ."). He explains his viewpoint of th earth post-Armageddon I suppose, rhapsodically. "The book of Revelations is to me for the most part a sealed book." He suggests his views are more suitable for the closet than the public.
