Scope and content

Sends Nora some of Henry's' letters to him [see 105/31-39]. Two or three of them relate to the University Tests Repeal movement, in which Henry took an active part. One letter, relating to F.W.H. Myers' poem St Paul when it first appeared', is interesting. Another about history in Cambridge was a reply to Bryce for advice on whom he should ask to join in starting the English Historical Review. Remarks on Henry's modesty in disclaiming historical knowledge for himself; comments on how admirably he handled it in The Development of European Polity. May find more letters, as he is certain that he has had many more. He and his wife are going down to Sussex for a little before they go abroad. Refers to proof sheets of a notice to appear in the Transactions of the British Academy [not included].
