Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Notes what Robert says about [Aeschylus's] "Choephoroi"; is reading [Sophocles's] "Philoctetes" with 'delight and eagerness'. Sends Robert the dust cover of the biography of Butler ["The Harrow Life of Henry Montagu Butler", by Edward Graham]; the title seems 'worthy'; his own contribution is a long narrative chapter, which he likes better than anything he has done before - 'but that is always the case with an old man's writing'.
