the book, and do not understand whether you have a copy, or only saw one at Thorpe's. But, if you have one at hand, I should be much obliged if you will give me a little bibliographical account of it. I am much struck by what you say about Francis Newman and his Phases of Faith; the more so, because only the Sunday before your letter came, I read a book, by William Rathbone Greg, called The Creed of Christendom, to which your account of Newman's could be applied verbatim. It came to me from Newman's could be applied verbatim. It came to me from the author. . . . It is a formidable book, not too long to be popular,—a small 8vo,— nor too learned, but logical, fair-minded, and well written. . . . . He takes ground similar to that of Strauss and Theodore Parker, but still is original to a certain degree. He draws heavily on the Germans, with whom he is evidently at home, and to whom he owes much. . . . . Kindest regards to Lady Head from all of us. Yours faithfully, G. Ticknor. To Sir Charles Lyell. Boston, June 26, 1852. my
