In parts:
"Mon cher ami
Religion de Dieux ou Religion de la vérité sont synonimes pour moi; nous sommes donc d`accord - et dans le beau titre Religion et la morale sans Prêtres que vous nous proposez a donner a votre ouvrage c`est encore le meme et la seconde partie surtout sans Prêtres, est la plus interessante pour le progrès humain...Ôtez le prêtre et la science pourra facilement fraterniser les Nations sans les auspices du mythe incompréhensible que nous presentons par ces ouevres et que nous sommes incapables de connaitre et de definir - Dieux l `Eternel l`infini, l`âme de l`univers enfin...Observez bien, que je n`enseigne pas Dieux - je laisse cette impudence aux Prêtres..."

"My dear friend
Religion of God or Religion of Truth sre synonymous for me; we are therefore in agreement - and in the beautiful title Religion and morality without priests which you propose to give your work, it is again the same and especially the second part without priests, is the most interesting for human progress...Remove the priest and science will easily be able to bring nations together without the auspices of the incomprehensible myth that we present by these works and that we are incapable of knowing and defining - God the Eternal, the infinite, the soul of the infinite universe...Note well, that I do not teach God - I leave that impudence to the priests..."
