Scope and content

8, Cheyne Gardens, S.W. - Has seen George [Trevelyan]. The difficulty with MacCarthy's Butler article [for the "Independent Review"?] is that Butler's friend Jones has let him see Butler's private diary and papers, and MacCarthy must show him what he has written before publishing. Is busy on Cobden, but is not sure whether he will get it into the "Westminster [Review]" before Saturday. Will try to see Trevelyan on Thursday but does not think he will be able to stay the night. Spent an hour with George and Janet yesterday evening; George read some of his "History" out, then MacCarthy 'discoursed about Japan'.
