Scope and content

Trinity College, Cambridge. - Apologises, but Jan [Bastiaan Hubrecht] is visiting just after Cambridge breaks up: Commem is on the 11th [Dec], and there will be no-one around after that, including George himself, but 'a few cross dons clearing up arrears of work'. If Jan could come next term or the term after, George could 'realize my desire' of giving Jan three or more weeks at Cambridge, should he wish; hopes this can be managed at some point in Jan's convalescence, but this term is impossible. Does not have a cutting of Charles's letter [to the "Times" on "Farm-Burning In The Transvaal And Orange River Colonies", 26 Nov 1900, p 12 ?]; thought it was very good; is 'going to look up 'Roses' which [he] missed on the 26th [or perhaps the 28th: reference to letter on the same subject which appeared in the "Times" of Nov 28, p 8, by Leonard Courtney?]'.
