Trinity College Library, Cambridge

Letter from C. H. Hartshorne to William Whewell

Is going to Oakham with Lord Northampton to give a lecture on the history and architecture of that place; sends his book, remarks that he wants to learn more from the Pipe rolls of Henry III and his three successors; admires Schlegel: 'The day I first opened the pages of Schlegel a new world of ideas burst on my mind'.

Letter from E. C. Hawtrey to William Whewell

Forwards the verses and addresses in the pamphlet and mentions English stanzas identified in manuscript on the page as by William Johnson (later Cory), and also praises the second English address by [Herbert John] Reynolds KS (King's Scholar). Is happy to find that he will soon be able to make mathematics "an integral part of our system, King's College has smoothed my way".

Hawtrey, Edward Craven (1789–1862), headmaster

Letter from Henry James to Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton

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.'

Letter from Chas. B. Scott to William Whewell

19 Dean's Yard, Westmr. S.W. - Describes a 'disorderly scene' in [Westminster] School on Shrove Tuesday, 'the Cook having failed for 3 years to throw the pancake over the bar'; has written a poem about the ensuing fracas, a revised version of which he is sending Whewell.
