Letter from G.O. Trevelyan to Nora Sidgwick

Greatly values Henry Sidgwick: A Memoir: it is 'exactly the right size and shape and perfectly got up in the medium between want of elegance and that sort of external and decorative pretension which alienates the true reader.' Expresses his admiration of the portraits, and calls the one of Henry's mother' a revelation of the past'. Wishes that there was one of Nora. Reports that he has read again all round the allusions to himself, and declares himself to be very proud of being there. Looks forward to a very careful reading 'with the recollection of the ships in mind.'
