Queen's Hotel, No. 71, Queen's Road, Bayswater, London -- Sends the book and asks for assistance in obtaining a copy of an elementary treatise on the tides by 'Lubock' or 'Luccock', as he has seen it variously spelled [William Lubbock]; is about to return to America.
Two letters concerning Whewell's article on Herschel.
Two letters; the first requesting him to write a review of Mrs Somerville's [On the connexion of the physical sciences], the second his thanks for the 'spirited review'.
3 Bolton St. - Thanks Lord Houghton for his note about the book [The American]; agrees that 'the Bellegardes are rather "belated". They would have been more probable under the old régime; but I suppose a novelist has always to force matters a little. But even to modified Bellegardes an American savoring much of the soil would never have been acceptable. The French don't at all like the Americans (according to my observation) - none, that is, save M. [Charles Frederick] Worth; & he, I believe, is English!. But the French, after all, don't like any one but the French!...'
Hopes that Houghton has completely recovered. Will leave town in a few days, but will visit Houghton before he does so. 'Yours faithfully & gratefully, H. James jr.'
