Thanks her for her invitation to dine with her on 18 April, but regrets that he must decline, as they expect 'Hal from India on the 20th', and he shall not return to Cambridge until 22 or 23 April. In relation to Henry Sidgwick: A Memoir, states that both he and Maggie have read 'in it', and feel that NS has 'completely succeeded.' Informs her of a mistake on page 32, in which it is claimed that Brookfield was a member of 'the Apostles' Society.' States that the latter was a friend of his father's, and was 'an excellent talker', but 'did not care enough about things to be a good Apostle.' Reports that his [Jackson's] 'oldest living friend, Dr [Melland]' wrote to him, and Jackson quotes from his letter in relation to HS, in which [Melland] refers to HS' love of truth, clear reasoning and logical power, his unselfish devotion to education in every direction, and his willing sacrifice of time and money, when needful to carry on any good cause.
