Thank you for your recent posting on Dedekind on numbers.

I must tell you that it never would enter my
head to dismiss (or praise) Dedekind's words as those of a
"typical liberal German bourgeois of his time."

I feel very sad.  I must have misstated myself grossly, some time and 
some place, if you can attribute such a pointless and silly 
remark to  me.

It's really discouraging.  Who are you thinking of that you
are confusing with me?
