Scope and content

Thanks her for the copy of Henry Sidgwick: a Memoir, which he has just received. Is sure that it will 'be of such intense interest to any one who cares for originality and beauty of character....' Does not believe, however, that any writing 'can convey all that made [Henry's] conversation so delightful to his friends.' Asks her to send him the letters from him to Henry, to which Nora refers, and states that he shall probably destroy them. Presumes that they are mainly about Home Rule, and remarks that he doubts that the Union will now be maintained. States that he will probably be in Cambridge the following term, and hopes to meet her.
