Scope and content

Thanks Sidgwick for sending him a copy of the new edition of his work [The Principles of Political Economy], which he predicts will be of much value to him. Declares that he is at present engaged in work on the [ ] [ ] Commission. Reports that he has just been looking at Sidgwick's comments on Bimetallism, with which he agrees, but disagrees with Sidgwick's contention that a tabular standard 'would supercede the [ ] for bimetallism.' Claims to see no mode, except that of bimetallism, of which there can be a common standard of value throughout the world, and states that 'a metallic basis of a stable [ ] is essential to the tabular system.' Congratulates Sidgwick on the completion of his work.
