Letter from Henry Jackson to J. G. Frazer

Aldourie, Bournemouth - Thanks him for the GB; thanks him for the letter of Nov. 18, reporting the success of his efforts on behalf of Spencer and Gillen, and for the letter of Dec. 6 acknowledging his pamphlet on the Eumedian Ethics, written in order to pay a compliment to [Franz] Susemihl, and mentioning that [Solomon] Schechter would be visiting Bournemouth, but he missed him; saw him once or twice during Robertson Smith's illness, but did not become acquainted, and will accept his introduction; is glad to hear Mrs Frazer's health has improved in Rome, and the discoveries in the Forum are most interesting, especially the confirmation of his theory about the perpetual fire, and asks about the current thinking on the location of the Temple of Vesta; his friend H.

Letter from T. Maulbes to Lilly Frazer

Paris, 7 rue Michelet - Responds to her request for advice on the translation of the 'Golden Bough', asks that his opinion be kept for the Frazers' eyes only, as [Adolf] Dirr and [Charles] van Gennep were his students, and Dirr was his secretary for a time; is not satisfied with [their] translation of 'Totemism'; thinks their English is proficient for translation but that they are not good writers; he is busy himself or would offer to help; thinks it will be difficult to publish as most of the book's readers would be subject specialists, and most of those can read English; mentions [George] Macmillan's demanding nature; wonders if she would like him to ask editors he knows if they would like to publish a translation of the 'Golden Bough'; the English edition is sold out, so a French edition would be profitable; also mentions the misunderstanding between Mlle de Bury and Lilly, and doesn't think anything should be done to try to explain as she will get angrier; says it was a pleasure to introduce Mlle Grove to his friends; is disappointed Frazer did not mention him in his book but adds 'Qu'avais-je à lui apprendre qu'il ne sut?', admires Frazer and wishes he might be mentioned if a French edition is published.

Letter from R. Stiébel to Lady Frazer

Paris - Is happy she liked his translation [of 'The Golden Bough'], agrees that it would be good to do a partial translation of the work and make it one big or two ordinary volumes, which would sell better in France than a 3 volume set, asks for a written confirmation that he has the right to translate all the parts of the work and the right to replace some chapters with summaries, will write to Macmillan.
