Scope and content

Trinity College, Cambridge. Dated 22 October 1907 - Thanks him for his kind words about his article ['Folk-Lore in the Old Testament' in 'Anthropological Essays Presented to Edward Burnett Tylor'], but he thinks the section on Sacred oaks and terebinths had too many quotations and was tedious; [Marcel] Mauss has pointed out that he anticipated Frazer concerning 'Not to seethe the kid in its mothers milk'; the psychology in Marett's essays does not interest him; a new edition of 'Adonis' comes out shortly, he has addressed [Lewis] Farnell's objections, would like his comments.
