Scope and content

Has been thinking a great deal about Nora over the past few months, 'with love and admiration', and is glad to hear from Th[omas?] that she is 'going to have some change of scene and interest.' Advises her to take all the rest of mind and body she possible can. Refers to the fact that Nora is gathering materials such as letter and papers with the intention of writing a memoir of Henry. Says that she herself has kept many of Henry's letters, and offers to send them to Nora at once. States that they might not meet again, but that their intercourse 'has been a highly valued privilege'. Adds that she hopes to go to Oxford in February, and that Arthur has kindly been giving her accounts of Nora.
