Scope and content

12 Pembroke Gardens, Kensington, W. - The Index [to the "Encyclopaedia Britannica" ?] is not yet finished; has been reading proofs for the last fortnight; B-G and M-Z are still unread and proof-reading is more like editing. Does not think that the work will last longer, and hopes to get away towards the end of February, but cannot hope to get further than Venice. 'The Sicilian dream was a pleasant one': would have been 'charming' to see Trevelyan there. Is glad Trevelyan is reading [Richardson's] "Clarissa"; hopes he will go on to "Sir Charles Grandison". Has been reading the "Aeneid". Sends thanks from his mother and asks to be remembered to Mrs Trevelyan.
