Scope and content

Writes in relation to the death of Archbishop Benson. Asks Sidgwick to convey his sympathy to Mrs Benson. Relates how, a few months previously, he was introduced to her in London, and they had a conversation 'on a French religious book which had struck her.' Claims to have been very grateful for her kindness, and is anxious that his sympathies be passed on to her in her time of grief. Fears that it would be unkind to write to her and believes that from Sidgwick 'a word would convey this little message without the fear that the word would be a burthen.'
