Letter from Henry Jackson to Nora Sidgwick

Returns to her with thanks her list of members of the Ad Eundem [included]; dates it 'not earlier than the spring of 1866, when W.H. Thompson became Master [of Trinity] and it is not later than the autumn of 1868' when he [Jackson] was elected. Thinks that the likely date is 1867. Gives a list of those he believes were the founders; includes the names of Henry Sidgwick, H. Fawcett, A. Sidgwick, W.C. Sidgwick, G.O. Trevelyan etc. Lists the names of some men who came later. States that from January 1872 he has a complete list. Refers to Arthur [Sidgwick's] resignation in December 1877, and his reelection in May 1879. He always regards the Ad Eundem 'as one of Henry's good works'; it has been very useful as a link between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Referring to the printed list, states that he believes that 'the written supplements are Munro's.'

Printed list entitled 'Ad Eundem Club/List of Members.' Lists members of the club, with their addresses. MS annotations.

Letter from Henry Jackson to Nora Sidgwick

Says he made an exact copy of the list of the Ad Eundem [see 103/57], but asks Nora to send it back to him if it turns up, as it is 'the only early record of the Society.' Regarding to the three photographs [of Henry Sidgwick] that he sends [see 103/60], claims the 'carte de visite head' taken by Guggenheim in Oxford was not his. Thinks that the oval photograph 'excellently represents Henry as he was soon after he took his degree.' Adds that he has, and values, Mr [ ] Smith's 'admirable portrait.'
