Letter from Henry Jackson to James Ward

Expresses his gratitude for Ward's having called his attention 'to the dialogue between Henry Sidgwick and John Grote in the C[lassical] R[eview] for March 1889' [“A Discussion Between Professor Henry Sidgwick and the Late Professor John Grote, on the Utilitarian Basis of Plato's Republic.” (1889) 3 Classical Review 97], and hopes that he will see his way to publishing it. Refers to the fact that Sidgwick always had an interest in the subject and 'always comes to this question from the point of view of ancient ethics.' Finds it surprising that he never read that 'curious paper', and reports that he 'read with great care [ ] Wilson's mendacious attack upon Archer Hind.' Explains that at the time, however, he had been very busy, and had completely forgotten that the paper had appeared. Remarks that 'anything of Sidgwick's about ancient ethics ought to be considered', since it always seemed to him that the subject 'had an especial fascination for him, and brought out in full force his critical quality.' Returns with the letter the copy of the Classical Review [not included]. Also expresses his gratitude to Ward for his having given him his paper 'on the [ ] of psychology', which he 'shall read with all the more interest' because he is lecturing on [Aristotle's?] De Anima and believes that the paper will very directly bear upon that subject.

Letter from Henry Jackson to Nora Sidgwick

Returns to her with thanks her list of members of the Ad Eundem [included]; dates it 'not earlier than the spring of 1866, when W.H. Thompson became Master [of Trinity] and it is not later than the autumn of 1868' when he [Jackson] was elected. Thinks that the likely date is 1867. Gives a list of those he believes were the founders; includes the names of Henry Sidgwick, H. Fawcett, A. Sidgwick, W.C. Sidgwick, G.O. Trevelyan etc. Lists the names of some men who came later. States that from January 1872 he has a complete list. Refers to Arthur [Sidgwick's] resignation in December 1877, and his reelection in May 1879. He always regards the Ad Eundem 'as one of Henry's good works'; it has been very useful as a link between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Referring to the printed list, states that he believes that 'the written supplements are Munro's.'

Printed list entitled 'Ad Eundem Club/List of Members.' Lists members of the club, with their addresses. MS annotations.

Letter from Henry Jackson to Nora Sidgwick

Thanks Nora for her invitation to dine with her on 18 April, but regrets that he must decline, as they expect 'Hal [their son] from India on the 20th', and he shall not return to Cambridge until 22 or 23 April. In relation to Henry Sidgwick: A Memoir, states that both he and Maggie have read 'in it', and feel that Nora has 'completely succeeded.' Informs her of a mistake on page 32, in which it is claimed that Brookfield was a member of the Apostles' Society: Brookfield was a friend of his father's, and was 'an excellent talker', but 'did not care enough about things to be a good Apostle.' Jackson quotes from a letter from his 'oldest living friend, Dr Melland', referring to Henry Sidgwick's love of truth, clear reasoning and logical power, his unselfish devotion to education in every direction, and his willing sacrifice of time and money, when needful to carry on any good cause.
