Scope and content

Thanks Nora for her letter. Quotes a sentence in the autobiographical fragment relating to Henry Sidgwick's interest in psychical research, and his 'hope of direct proof of the continued individual existence which he regarded as necessary from an ethical point of view'; would not quote the words [presumably in the obituary notice of Henry Sidgwick he is writing for the January 1901 issue of Mind], but intimate the general intention, and would make no comment.
