I cannot allow other common
friendships to be placed in the same line
with ours. I have as much knowledge of

friendships one has to walk with one’s
bridle in one’s hand, prudently and
cautiously: the knot is not tied so tightly
but that it will cause some misgiving —

exhibit the very depths of our heart and
make no reservations, truly all the springs
of action must be perfectly ‘clear and true’.”
