Invitation to dinner to meet [Rancke]
He has accepted an invitation; he thanks the Prince for a platform ticket
He can keep an appointment
Looking forward to seeing him
Letter from John B. Sumner, Archbishop of Canterbury, to Adam Sedgwick, 30 May 1880-30 May 1900 (Circa. No year given)
Thanks for reference for Livesey, candidate for an Assistant Curator's post in the Department of Minerals, British Museum; he has not seen the work alluded to; he would soon be out of his depth 'in the wider sea of Geology'; 'Such inquiries, when arguments are based upon them, will be found to lead to very uncertain, if not dangerous, conclusions.'
Sends enclosure: seeks help of Sedgwick's 'archaeological neighbours'; his book will contain much new material; he needs support for publication
Letter from John Sinclair, Archdeacon of Middlesex, to Adam Sedgwick, 8 Mar. 1880-8 Mar. 1900 (Circa. No year given)
Thanks for contribution to Blomfield Monument Fund; they raised about £1300; the monument will be a recumbent figure in St Paul's on a site chosen by the Bishops of London and Oxford and Mr Beresford Hope; eminent sculptors are invited to send models
Thanks for condolences
Glad to act on Sedgwick's recommendation for the son of a North Lancashire friend; he must consider proper conduct of Post Office business, and residents' convenience
His rheumatism has subsided - by mesmerism; it worked also for bilious headaches
He accepts Sedgwick's invitation for the Norwich Assizes
When can he start making a bust of Sedgwick?
Glad Taylor's translations from Breton are approved; attractions of 'the old world Armorican race'; Kingsley is staying with them: he and Taylor's wife share an interest in music
Congratulations on his 82nd birthday; Selwyn in recovering at Guilford
