Scope and content

Writes on the death of Henry Sidgwick to express her and [her husband's - the Provost of King's College] sympathy with Nora on her loss. Refers to the pleasure that she derived from the conversations she had at different times with Henry, who she describes as 'so good as well as delightful and clever.' Reports that the last time her husband saw Henry, the latter gave him some very good advice about a University controversy, which he followed.
