Wm to H'ry, May 3, 1903. Age: 61.

Wm thinks he's got just one more book in him (he's wrong):

"I see now with absolute clearness, that greatly as I have been helped & enlarged by my University business hitherto, the time has come when the remnant of my life must be passed in a different manner, contemplatively namely, and with leisure and simplification for the one remaining thing, which is to report in one more book, at least, such impression as my own intellect has received from the Universe."
