Scope and content

Palatino (Rome). Dated 25.iii (1913) - Thanks him for the first volume on 'The Belief in Immortality and the Worship of the Dead'; it has made him think of the fear of death of the indigenous Siculi or Liguri who lived in the foothills of the Palatine, hopes to show him the mysterious [word missing] a new one just discovered under the oldest republican house under Domitian's Lararium; a doctor friend says he's seen a difference in the ways those in the north face death compared to those from the south; next May wants to go to Eton to examine some sketches, and will be doing a lecture in London, hopes to see them then.
