Scope and content

Sends her the names of some of Turgenief's novels, which he has praised. Refers to Liza, Fathers and Sons, and Smoke, which have all been translated into English. Lists some that have been translated into French: Étranges Histoires, [ [ ] and Mémoires d'un Seigneur Russe. Adds that he forgot to ask her that morning before he left her, whether her brother Frank [Balfour] 'is now, or is likely to be soon, in London', and asks her for his address. Explains that he has been hoping to see him to compare notes about Finland.
