Letter from E.E. Bowen to Nora Sidgwick

Sends her the only letter [from Henry Sidgwick] that he can find [not included]. Remarks that the freedom and freshness of it still seems very vivid to him. Advises her in relation to her plan to write a memoir, that it would be best 'in the form either of an introduction to some posthumous publication, or else of a magazine or review article.'

Bowen, Edward Ernest (1836-1901) schoolmaster

Typewritten copy of E.E. Bowen's reminiscences of Henry Sidgwick's undergraduate years.

Relates the occasion that he heard the news that HS had won the Craven Scholarship, and describes his wide-ranging academic interests. Recalls a walking tour he took with him in South Wales, and a competition they had to begin 'some stanza of the Odes that the other could not finish.' Refers also to the respect in which his opinion on various matters was held. Some amendments in ink.
