Scope and content

Typewritten copy. The only other thing that occurs to him about Thompson is that he was 'an admirable writer of letters': he himself had several from him on various occasions, which were all good, 'in their different styles, [always] easy and delicate, saying just what was intended without apparent effort.' Suggests that Arthur look at the Athenaeum of the previous Saturday, 'where there is a notice by someone well informed (probably Jackson).' Believes that there are also two notices in the Saturday [Review, but has not had time to read them.
