Scope and content

Refers to having mentioned to Nora her brother 'P[ercy]'s relation with Mr. Sidgwick', and to Nora having asked her if she had any letter 'giving impressions as to his teaching.' Reports that she spoke to her brother on this subject, and that the latter sent to her 'the enclosed' [see 103/44]. With reference to one sentence in it in relation to Henry's treatment of 'the undergraduates who came to the lectures', states that she is certain that her brother did not mean that HS did not pay them enough attention, and that he thought that 'discussion with a quite young man, at that time a very enthusiastic Kantian, might be as good for them as the reception of his own more matured ideas.'
