Scope and content

Thanks her for 'the Life' [Henry Sidgwick: a memoir] which is to him 'a priceless possession', and which 'reveals phases of [Henry's] long life-course and sides of his mind which one had not known or not seen the full meaning of'. Hopes to write to her again when he has finished reading; describes it as being 'as simple, and as perfect, as it could have been made.' States that Mr Dicey and Mrs Creighton and others concur with him in the latter sentiment.
