Short summary:  Thanks for receipt of Hufeland's work on the Art of prolonging life which has given Kant much pleasure to study. Kant also tells that he in the near future will publish his more detailed comments on this useful book. A year later (January 1798) Hufeland received a long letter from Kant with positive and negative comments. The letter was immediately published with Hufeland's own counter arguments under the title Von der Macht der Gemüthes durch den blossen Vorsatz seiner krankhaften Gefühle Meister zu werden.
