Scope and content

Reports that he has just received a 'cheering account' of Henry Sidgwick's progress from H. Jackson, and so ventures to write to her. Assures her of how grieved he has been 'in common with so many other Sidgwick's illness and the consequent resignation of his professorship, and of the value he and others place on Henry's friendship. Thanks her for her letter to his wife, in which she refers to his having undergone the operation successfully. Refers to the Sunday that the Sidgwicks spent with them as one of two or three days in his life which he would not have missed for anything, but fears that it must have been 'a day of fearful anxiety and depression' for them. Sends Henry his love, and asks her to tell him that all his friends are thinking of him and hoping to see him again. Apologises for having typed the letter, claiming that his writing is illegible.
