Scope and content

Has 'read and re read many parts of' Henry Sidgwick: a Memoir, and found it extremely interesting. States that it fills him with regret that Henry is gone, and that he can not know raise the questions that he wishes to discuss with him. Refers to Henry's scepticism and his attitude to ethics. Claims to have found the book 'admirably done and highly stimulating'. Quotes a passage in German from Kant, and states that 'in Ethics one requires a series of injunctions not merely the avoidance of speculative errors...' Announces that his mother came with him to Rome, and that they intend to return in ten days.
