Scope and content

Refers to papers that he had put together [not included; for the purposes of writing Henry Sidgwick's obituary for Mind], and thought that Nora might like to have them. Relates the story of Henry having been asked by MacColl, the editor of the Athenaeum, to write on the subject of Darwinism, taking the opposite view to Dr Gray of the British Museum. Thinks that MacColl would be glad to tell Nora if Sidgwick's contribution to the journal included other topics.
