Highgarth, Gloucester. Dated 15 February 1915 - Is trying to arrive at some principles of criticism of historical traditions, and thought that [John] Roscoe and [Emil] Torday attached exaggerated value to the Baganda and Bushongo traditions; discusses naming of mothers by the names of their children, the eating of domestic fowls; describes Australia, the southern half a monotonous landscape and the canyons of the Blue Mountains beautiful; discusses stopping his subscription to the 'Athenaeum' and that there is nothing to take its place.
