Scope and content

Reports that he sent on Patterson's letter of 16 November to his brother Arthur, being himself unable to answer more than a part of it. States his intention of going to visit Patterson in Budapest during the Easter vacation, and will plan a visit to Germany around his Hungarian trip. Hopes his health is better than last year. Reports that he is 'trying to effect a temporary transfer of [his] habits of reflection from the subject of "Politics", on which [he has] more or less concentrated [his] mind for some years, to that of "Experimental Psychology"'. Announces that there is to be a congress held in London on the subject, at which he must preside the following August. Reports that he is staying with Arthur Balfour 'who is putting on his armour for the Parliamentary campaign'. Refers to the coming general election, and declares that he has no doubt 'that the Separatist party will have a majority; but the question is whether they will have a majority large enough to carry so fateful a change as Home Rule [for Ireland].' Asks Patterson to send him Mr [Zsolt?] Beothy's full title and address.
