Russell "Knowledge by Acquaintance and by description"

OK, so I'm pretty well versed in Knowledge by Acquaintance and by Description, but, what I'm left wondering is - based upon this essay, how exactly do you think Russell would respond to an individual that was a proponent of skepticism. Further, how does he modify "On Denoting" in "Knowledge by Acquaintance and Knowledge by Description?" Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

@johnthompsonIII,
Good homework question ! Smile
I would try using Wittgenstein's views on skepticism for an angle on this, since W "broke" with Russell on the significance of analytic philosophy.
