Scope and content

Gathering of MS notes; first page bearing the heading 'Notes mainly critical on the Tragedies of Seneca". Gathering of MS notes in envelope labelled 'MSS of Seneca's Tragedies. C. E. Stuart's collations of notes on MSS additional to what is recorded in his large notebooks [Add.MS.b/57, Add.MS.c/79 and Add.MS.d/63]' and with E[rnest] Harrison's name. Gathering of MS notes in envelope labelled 'C.E.S. Rough copy of parts of a discussion of the relations between the A MSS of Seneca's tragedies; possibly relics of an earlier form of the article in C[lassical] Q[uarterly] VI (1912) but he seems to go further here than there into the classification of the more useless MSS' [envelope originally? addressed to E. Harrison from P. Arthur with note 'not to be forwarded].

Typescript, "The Tragedies of Seneca"; title page has two notes by Harrison, recording that it is Stuart's dissertation [for his Trinity Fellowship, 1907] 'as it was sent in. All changes made by pen (except a few trifles) are subsequent. E.H. 9 Dec 1917.' and that 'marginal self-criticisms' are 'almost all due to [Harrison's] notes'.
