Scope and content

Expresses his pleasure at receiving Sidgwick's letter, in which the latter declared that he would preside over the Apostles Society dinner in 1900, if Holland desired it. Declares that he would rather hear Sidgwick speak than 'Sir W.V.H.[Harcourt]', but agrees that his name 'would be the most potent with which to draw a large gathering'. Suggests that Sidgwick write to him asking him to preside, and declares that if he declines, that he [Holland] will proclaim Sidgwick as 'the President of 1900.'
