WJ. Letter to Henry James. Keene Valley, 8 September 1907. b MS Am 1092.9 (2938)

“I want to write and publish, if I can do it, another immortal work, less popular but more original than ‘pragmatism’ which latter no one seems rightly to understand, representing it as a philosophy got up for the use of engineers, electricians and doctors, whereas it really grew up from a more subtle and theoretical analysis of the function of knowing, than previous philosophers had been willing to make. I know that it will end by winning its way & triumphing.”
