Summary A letter, probably from an [I]sak to a fellow monk, of equal status judging from the word "brother" (rather than "father" or "son") used. He is reporting about a meeting and conversation with another person, about spiritual issues: ll.3-5: I come out and I say to him "It is an empty grace, of the empty man."
