Writes to express his sympathy with Nora, and his sorrow on the death of his friend Henry. Regrets that he did not go 'a third time to that house in London', and explains that, as he had not received a postcard, he believed that the Sidgwicks had gone away. Adds that he was 'on the point of writing two or three days [previously] about some matter connected with the hibernation of a Hindu ascetic', and claims that he was not aware that Henry was so ill. Informs her that he and Henry were at dayschool together in Clifton before they went to Rugby, where, he says, they were always friends. Recalls Henry's kindness and encouragement when he was unhappy about the Exhibition Examination at Rugby, and how Henry made it possible for him to join the Apostles at Cambridge. Admits that there was 'a little intermission of intercourse broken by occasional letters' when Tawney went to India, but remembers how kind Henry was in inviting him 'to that house near Hobson's Conduit, and his meeting Tawney at the station. Adds that his wife had hoped that both Nora and Henry might come to visit the Tawneys before Cambridge opened. States that he admired Henry a great deal, and that he was 'such a cordial and sincere friend'.
