Letter from S. H. Butcher to Nora Sidgwick

Has mentioned to Nora's sister Alice that he had 'once or twice got letters from [Henry]', which might be of interest to her; one of them related to some difficulties he had raised about women's degrees at Cambridge. Regrets to say that he has not been able to find them, and fears that they may have been mislaid or have perished in the course of various clearances of his house. Undertakes to send them to Nora if he comes across them, and adds that the missing letters only amount to two or three. Remarks that it must be 'a profound satisfaction' to all Henry's friends that Nora has been able to recover so much, and also what a difficult task it must be to arrange the lectures on European politics. Reports that he is 'weathering the winter well', and that they spent 'two delightful Sundays at Whittingehame the previous month. Sends Rose's love.

Letter-card from Alexandrina Mayor to Nora Sidgwick

Forgot to mention in her last letter [104/69] that Mr Aldis Wright was the other member of the original group making up the Philosophical Society [later the Grote Society]. States that her husband will write to her when he arrives home.

Letter from Alexandrina Mayor to Nora Sidgwick

Explains that her husband, [Professor J.B. Mayor], has been very busy since he received Nora's letter [104/67], and is hoping to write to her soon. Relates that Nora's letter led her and her husband to talk over 'the memories of old times', and that he suggested that she should write down one or two of them for Nora. Recalls that the meetings 'used to be in turn at one or other room in Cambridge and at Trumpington vicarage', and that they always used to be announced to her as 'a "sabia conversazion" '. States that the meetings were always at 'T[rumpington] V[icarage]', as her uncle [Professor Grote] had altogether given up going out to dinner or in the evenings, and that those attending used to dine and at first after dinner she used to sit in the drawing room alone. One day, however, her uncle announced that she was to be admitted a member of the 'S.C.', and they would come into the drawing room after dinner, for the discussion. Recalls that at first the members consisted of Henry Sidgwick, Mayor, Somerset and Venn. Believes that Henry got to know her uncle at his Fellowship Examination, and states that her uncle used to have two or three of those in whom he had taken a special interest over to dine; recalls Henry and his future brother-in-law Edward Benson being first introduced in that way. In relation to the dialogue that took place, states that her husband will write more, and, in the meantime, assures her that 'it was a real discussion' at Trumpington.

Letter from George Phear to Nora Sidgwick

Writes to express his sympathy with Nora on the death of Henry Sidgwick. Refers to Nora's earlier letter, which first gave him reason to fear 'what has so quickly come.' Claims that her loss 'is exceptional to all who knew him; to all Cambridge', and that [Cambridge] University has lost from its midst a man of 'rare qualities and beautiful character'. States that Henry's death 'breaks associations which have been of first value to' him throughout his active and personal life. Hopes that one day Nora may be able to let him see her when he calls before leaving Cambridge for the winter.

Letter from Annette Peile to Nora Sidgwick

Writes to express her sympathy with her on the death of Henry Sidgwick. Assures her that her thoughts are with her, and of how much she loved her 'dear one.' Knows that she now 'fully realizing that he is at rest, and saved the long invalids [sic] life', which would have tried him so, and that she knows too that he has now learned the [ ] mystery about which he was so eager all his life. Refers to his great wisdom, and reminds Nora that she has still 'the honour of being his wife'. Prays that God will bless her and help her 'in this great sorrow'. Adds that she wishes 'they had let [her] see him that day he came!'

Letter from John Peile to Nora Sidgwick

Writes to express his sympathy on the death of Henry Sidgwick. States that he had been prepared for the news, but 'could not realise that the end was so near.' Claims to have begun to realise 'that his life, if prolonged, could mean only weakness and weariness, and inability to do the work which he had so much at heart...' Believes that few people ever can have had so perfect a union in marriage as' the Sidgwicks had. Cannot imagine what Cambridge will be without him, he having been so much a part of every movement there for forty years. Claims that he was always 'wise inspiring and courageous: and his work will live!' Explains that his wife has not yet heard the news, and that he will tell her the following morning.

Peile, John (1838-1910), college head and philologist
