Scope and content

Ought long ago to have thanked Nora for sending him back his letters to Henry Sidgwick, but wanted to wait until he had finished Henry Sidgwick: A Memoir. Finds it 'extraordinarily interesting', and has much to say about it, but will not inflict a long letter on her. Is in the process of writing an article on the book for the next Dublin Review, and states that the theme will be Henry's intellectual character, and the effect of intellectual stimulation that he produced in those with whom he had conversations. Adds that he contrasts him with Jowett, who, although Ward was very fond of him, 'was most unstimulating'. Undertakes to send Nora a copy of his article in proof when it is ready. Hopes that her brother [Arthur Balfour] is quite well again 'after his rest cure.'
