Scope and content

Lanfine, Hills Road, Cambridge. Dated 7 March 1924 - Is sorry the expense of publishing his [Frazer] lecture is his, hopes to remedy this in future; has not heard from [William] Ridgeway; saw Bishop [Thomas Wortley] Drury at St. Catharine's; is sorry there are no congenial men in his neighbourhood; sees parallels between the use of children in ritual in 'The Banyankole' and ancient Greek ritual; asks if he has seen P. A. Talbot's 'Life in Southern Nigeria' and E. S. Hartland's 'Primitive Paternity'; gave his last lecture and is glad they are over.
