Scope and content

Writes to inform Sidgwick that he has written a review of his book for the Pall Mall Gazette [Fortnightly Review?]. Is unsure as to whether [Morley] will print it or not, as he 'could not manage to get it into a small space'. Claims, on the other hand, that he did not have enough space for a satisfactory review. States that some of Sidgwick's arguments do not quite satisfy him, and that he has written down his reasons, but could not put them into the review. Promises to send them on to Sidgwick if, on re-reading them, they seem worth notice. Claims that he is 'too rusty' in his political economy 'to feel very confident about them', and expresses his admiration for the quantity of hard thinking Sidgwick manages to turn out.
