Correspondence between Voysey and Hermann Muthesius : Hermann Muthesius (1861-1927) was a German architect, author and diplomat, perhaps best known for promoting many of the ideas of the English Arts and Crafts movement within Germany and for his subsequent influence on early pioneers of German architectural modernism such as the Bauhaus. He was the author of Das englische Haus (Ernst Wasmuth, 1904-5). Alternative source with notes in English

Individuality ... breaks down that hateful arrogance that assumes the ignorance or wickedness of particular sections of society. It forces us to see that all men are endowed with the same noble instincts & that our differences are due only to the degree of their cultivation.
