Scope and content

Thanks Nora for the gift of a copy of Henry Sidgwick: A Memoir; will send her his impressions of it when he has read it. Explains that he is very busy and that he may have to wait for his summer holidays before he can finish it. Suggests that Macmillan, the publisher, should be asking '7/6 net' for it rather than '12/6 net'. Adds that he is very pleased to find [in the memoir] 'that little scrap from [his] letter to him', containing words, which some who never knew him 'may be more willing to take as simply true from one who was unallied to him by blood or creed....' Declares the photograph of 'the dear old Family Nurse [Beth Cooper]' to be 'delightful'.
