Brightman received this note with the following paper on J. M. E. McTaggart, William E. Hocking, and Brightman. He wrote at the bottom of the note: “I’m certainly going to take this into account. Thank you for your frankness.”

Dr. Brightman

I am almost ashame to turn this paper in because of the numerous errors found in it. How the typist made such error, I cannot understand. I have tried to correct as many of the mistakes as possible, but some of them I couldn’t. For an instance there is a long quotation on page 10 wh from Hocking which should have been single-spaced without quotation marks, indented, and set off by an omitted line before and after it. The footnotes are also in somewhat bad condition. I have corrected them as much as possible.

I hope that this can {will} be taken under consideration in your correcting the paper. It so happens that I am financially unable to have it retyped.
