Letter from Frederic W. Maitland to Sir Leslie Stephen (1833-1904), 7 Jan. 1895
Scope and Contents
If he outlives Stephen, he will publish any unfinished book by Stephen, without making alterations; he would not like to execute the biography of Stephen: would leave out much intimate matter; Stephen should leave detailed instructions; 'I should like to think that the men who read your books would know a little of your devoted love and your sorrow.'
