Thanks Nora for having sent a copy of 'the Memoir of one whom I regarded with so much esteem and affection [Henry Sidgwick: a Memoir]. Is at present 'deep in Morley's Life of Gladstone ', and also has Mathilde Serao's Il Paese di Gesù [to read]. Reports that her health is still good, but is aware of a deterioration in her mental and physical strength over the previous six months. Reports that her nephew, Charles Cannan, with his wife and family, have taken lodgings in the vilage for three weeks around Easter, which pleases her greatly. Relates that their hills [in Westmorland] are still covered in snow, but that the valleys are green and the roads are again passable for pedestrians. Asks Nora to burn any old letters of hers that she finds. Adds that she is glad to hear 'tolerable accounts of [the] William Sidgwicks and of Arthur.' Tells her not to be overworking herself.
Cannan, Mary Louisa (1819-1911) schoolteacher
