Scope and content

Sends Nora what he has written for the Economic Journal [not included]; it is very kind of her to agree to read it before it is published, and he will be grateful for any suggestions. Refers to the alterations he has made in the light of the notes she sent him.

Explains that the course of lectures referred to by Professor Mandello [see 104/74] is a course on philosophy and sociology, delivered by Henry Sidgwick in the Easter term of 1896. When Mandello was in Cambridge he dined with them and afterwards called on them; does not know or remember enough about him 'to have any reliable view as to the value of his opinion.' Also does not know anything about the Institut de sociologie of which Mandello speaks; undertakes to find out more if he can. Does not know who is the best person to consult about the desirability of publishing Henry's course of lectures on sociology. Returns Mandello's letter.
