Regarding The Other Questions That You Mention, I Think That It Will Be More Convenient To Answer Them After Reading The Book. If You Send It Now, I Will Return It To You In Time. So Now, I Find Myself In Expectation Of Becoming Better Acquainted With You And Your Writing, And I Wish You A Prompt Recovery.' Vg Piotr Petrovich Nikolaev (1873-1928) Russain Writer And Philosopher. A Follower Of Tolstoy. Author Of The Concept Of God As The Absolute Foundation Of Consciousness, 1907. Leo Tolstoy Would Write To Nikolaev On 2Nd August 1903 "Dear Pyotr Petrovich, I'Ve Read Your Manuscript And Am Returning It. It Was A Pleasure To Read It… I Would Advise You To Set Forth Everything In Concise Theses And, This Is The Main Thing, Don'T Be In A Hurry. Set This Work Aside For A Time, Jotting Down Individual Ideas That Are Connected To It. It Wouldn'T Be Bad To Have The Manuscript Printed Now--People Might Find It Useful, But It Would Be Better To Have It Printed When It Has Been Improved As Much As Possible…" This Letter Responds To Nikolaev'S Letter And Accompanying Manuscript Of "The Distortions Of The Teaching Of Christ," Sent In Mid-July 1903, Wich Most Probably Is The Same Manuscript Mentioned In The Present Chertkov'S Letter A Few Months Earlier In January 1903.
