Abstract:

Thanking him for his letter; saying he has had "some pleasant walks lately and am quite sure that I cannot be so well anywhere else in the world as I am and shall be here;" saying that Joanie [Joan Agnew] is well and how important she is to him; saying "I live more with my father and mother dead than ever when they were alive. They used to cross me and say absurd things, but my father's letters and diaries are very precious and if ever I have a pleasant walk, I still write an imaginary account of it to my mother;" saying that his work at Oxford takes up more time than he expected but that he hopes it will eventually be good work.
