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.'

Bridge House, Matlock, Derbyshire. - Sent a 'small Páli MS and a printed Buddhist tract to Trinity Library yesterday, and with this letter sends his copy of Rask's Sinhalese gramma, 'a work of exceeding rarity, and which I do not think any English library possesses. Gives him great pleasure 'to confide this valuable volume to such able and enlightened keeping as that of the Master and fellows of Trinity College.'
