Scope and content

Returns the MS [of Henry Sidgwick, a Memoir, not included] to her, remarking that he has 'insensibly slipped into the passive role of a reader', which, he claims, is 'the greatest compliment that one can pay to a book in proof-sheets.' Declares that he is very pleased with the notices of himself. Points out a slight mistake and some corrections to be made, and reports that two pages did not arrive. Remarks that 'Miss [Mary Louisa] Cannan was a privileged woman', and wonders whether she is alive and still unmarried. Announces that they shall now be [residing] continuously at Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland.
