Scope and content

Refers to his delay in writing to express his sympathy on the death of Henry Sidgwick. Declares that the latter 'only longed to go, to rest at the close of a noble life', but remarks on how bitter the loss must be for her, who must go on without him. Refers to 'his sympathy, his understanding, his support so generously given'. States that he shall never forget him. Explains that the packet of Henry's letter-journals to [John] Symonds was returned to him, and suggests that they are either among his papers, or have been destroyed by Henry himself. Undertakes to see what other letters he has from Henry to Symonds. Sends on his mother's love and sincere sympathy.
