Copy letter from Henry Sidgwick to Lady Victoria Welby-Gregory

Typewritten copy of letter dated 19 January 1894. Decided not to send her paper to [Bernard] Bosanquet because he believed that there was a danger of his not understanding the exact aim of the criticism. Offers to send it, but suggests that if [Samuel] Alexander knows him and could see him it might be better to give it to Bosanquet through him. Is glad to hear that she is well enough 'to go on with this laborious task.' Sends greetings from Nora, who is in the midst of organising domestic matters, from which he says he takes refuge 'in Philosophy.'

Copy letter from Henry Sidgwick to Lady Victoria Welby-Gregory

Typewritten copy of letter dated 19 February 1894: Sends her Bosanquet's answer [see 105/45/8]:not included]. Adds that an Oxford friend of his once remarked to him that 'Bosanquet's Logic had the inconvenient peculiarity of not being intelligible in parts', and that one had to understand it all in order to understand any of it.
