Newnham College, Cambridge - Is sending the two reprints [not present], Mr Bosanquet's and her own; admires [F. M.] Cornford's grasp of mythology and ritual; asks if there is a parallel to the cannibal feast of Tantalus in initiation rites; thinks his lecture clears up the dispute between Cook and Cornford and Ridgeway; discusses mythical ancestors vs Ridgeway's insistence on historical persons; hopes he is coming to Ridgeway's lecture on Monday at which 'he proposes to demolish both Mr Cornford & me!'.
