Short summary:  Thanks for receipt of the second edition of Jacobi's work on Spinoza which has just arrived to Kant. The tone is polite in spite of the rather acid review of the first edition of Jacobi's book by Kant, published in Berliner Monatsschrift, October 1786. This review contained Kantian ideas which appeared in full in Kant's second major work, Kritik der praktischen Vernunft (1788).
