Caroline Lierse criticizes David Lewis and myself for seeking to uphold the Humean Distinct Existences principle — no necessary connection between distinct existences — but at the same time covertly abandoning it in our discussion of properties. She devotes most of her space to Lewis, who can speak for himself. I plead guilty to using some infelicitous language in my 1978 book on universals, to which she refers, but think I am innocent of the charge she brings.
