Scope and content

Declares that he thinks that Sidgwick's frame of mind 'is a degree more rational.' Encourages him to write his essay, at which point Seeley and he 'will come to an agreement.' Believes that until such time and until they meet at Cambridge, it is not worth while pursuing the discussion further, 'because it can be carried on with much less waste of time by word of mouth.' States that the period from 1760 to 1802 will do very well for him.
