Scope and content

Impossible that Henry Sidgwick 'should have named anything which would interest [him] more than the Byron' [to be left to Trevelyan?] Refers to one of the poems, the Ode to Napoleon, which is 'exceedingly characteristic of Cowell' and a pleasant reminder of the close friendship that united Cowell, Henry and himself. Has not been in the habit of keeping letters from anyone, but that he has kept, as a bookmark, 'a very tattered letter of Henry's of 1896'; also Henry's last two of May and July 1900, kept 'as priceless possessions.' Also possible that he may find one or two letters written to him at important occasions of his life, as his wife has kept a great many of them. Undertakes to send all that he has.
