Scope and content

Declares that it strikes her 'that the action mentioned' by her brother Percy [see 103/44] 'is all the more generous in that P.G. must have been one of the very few Mor[al] Science men who were not in any way pupils of Dr S[idgwick.' Percy 'went down just after taking his classical degree... and read Philosophy a good deal alone and then with some coaching from Seeley's brother [perhaps Leonard Benton Seeley?] in London'. Declares that Dr Sidgwick showed 'peculiar generosity in this case.'
