Scope and content

Asks if Miss Edg[ ] could call at his rooms on the following Saturday. Reports that the papers have reached him, and remarks that he supposes that the volume of which she speaks is a collection of tracts. States that, until Nora showed him the letters, he had not realised that the motions, brought forward at the College meetings of 1865 to 1869, were in the main devised by Henry alone. States that he has assumed that Henry had been acting in conjunction with others, such as Edward Bowen and George Young. Remarks that his 'vigorous initiative' was instumental in preparing them for the legislative work of 1870 to 1873. Expresses his concern at the news that she had been unwell. Adds that he expects to be in Cambridge until the end of the month, and that he will be glad to call if she would like him to do so.
