Scope and content

Fen Ditton, Cambridge - Thanks him for [the second edition of 'The Golden Bough']; is glad to hear from Mrs Frazer how he fares in foreign lands; has been put on the Caius Governing Body, and then the University Council, thinks it would be helpful as the next four years will be important for the advancement of anthropology there, 'I know that you will consider me a jackass for going into University business', [Francis?] Jenkinson and [M. R.?] James both voted against him, 'to keep me from wasting my time'; is about to publish volume one of his book, going ahead even though new discoveries are made during every spring's diggings; A. J. Evans gave a lecture on Cnossus; [John?] Capstick is flourishing and the Fellowship dividend has gone up; [Henry?] Jackson is much better; [Arthur?] Verrall still poorly; [Solomon?] Schechter is better; encloses a document sent him by C. H. Read [not present]; [Herbert Hope?] Risley is a splendid fellow; Ridgeway is pushing for a new museum of anthropology, has an old Caius friend, wealthy, childless, interested in archaeology, who will help and will work the City Companies for him.
