Scope and content

"The Clock House" Shepperton. Dated 25th March (1911) - Will be happy to be quoted in Frazer's forthcoming book [about substitutes for executions in China?], but asks to be allowed to rewrite his former note; will look through Herbert Spencer's 'Descriptive Sociology', ('that mountain of ill-assorted facts and opinions'), and asks if he has looked through Arthur Smith's 'Chinese Characteristics'.
