Forster to Florence Barger,30 September 1917: 'Thanks for The Feet of the Young Men, but I wish I hadn't docked 2/- from your £ for it: an undistinguished little book [...] I enjoy books and such thoughts as progress from them greatly, and am pleased to find I can understand a little of Spinoza and that he is every bit as fine as I had suspected. He holds my intellect at its utmost strain'.
