LET us now come to consider who the souls are that enter the second Mansions and what they do there. I want to say very little to you about this, because elsewhere I have written of it at length,40 and it will be impossible for me to avoid repeating a great deal of this, because I cannot remember anything of what I said. If it could be arranged41 in a different form, I am quite sure you would not mind, as we are never tired of books that treat of this, numerous though they are.
40 Life, Chaps. XI-XIII; Way of perfection, The Complete Works of St. Teresa, Chaps. XX-XXIX.
41 [The word (guisar: "season", "dress") is a homely one: "dished up" would hardly be too colloquial a translation.]
