Der vollständige Text des im Oktober 1904 in der "North American Review" (Bd. CLXXIX, Nr. 575, SS. [481]-493) veröffentlichten Aufsatzes über die politischen Ereignisse in Rußland kurz bevor die Revolution von 1905 ausbrechen sollte. Enthält rund 5¼ SS. mehr Text als die Druckfassung, in die einige im Text gestrichene Passagen nicht übernommen wurden: "As the forces of Czardom are driven back and crippled more and more, both on sea and on land, curious attempts are being made in England to impress public opinion with the idea that, if ever she were actively to turn against Russia, she would have to reckon with an armed alliance between Russia and Germany [...]".

To Miss E. Eva Boult, citing his views as set forth in an issue of The Antiquary: "On the eve of our leaving town for a short time, your letter reaches me. Please excuse, therefore, this hurried answer. The question at issue more intimately concerns Prof. Sayce [i. e. the pioneer British Assyriologist and linguist Archibald Sayce] from whom I have quoted. As far as my own views are involved in it, you will find them indicated both in the April number of The Antiquary (p. 145, 1st col.), and in the May number (p.

p. 201 and 202). What we now have of the 'Homeric' poems, are comparatively such late productions that we cannot wonder at finding in them, especially as regards art, descriptions of a rather anachronistic kind. The Phoenikians, consequently, may have been worked into the earlier rhapsodic ballads at a later date. A comparison between the Eddic Nibelung lays and our national Epic will make this procedure very clear. The story of the fall of Troy is, no doubt, an exceedingly old one [...]". - On stationery with printed address..

To Miss Macgregor, citing the Edda and at some length a point regarding Freyja and vidar: "The Edda only says that Freyja wandered to far lands and unknown nations to seek Odur, 'weeping golden tears for him'. In the same passage Gylfi's incantation, 35, her necklace (Brisinga-men, which is interpreted now as being made from Rhine-gold of the Breis-gau) is mentioned. No meeting with Vidar is recorded either in the poetic or prose Edda. I do not remember a tale of this kind [...]". - On stationery with printed address. - Very spotty and some damage to lower corner of fol. 2 (not touching text).

To Miss Macgregor, returning her poem on Freyja. Comments on another Germanic mythological cycle and on the origin of Freyja: "I return with thanks your poem on Freyja's Roaming Guest for Odur, which I have read with much pleasure. I think Aurora, belonging to another cycle of mythology, should be replaced by Dawn. The East being, in Germanic love, the quarter where life awakes, as typified by the goddess Ostara, would perhaps better be called the 'glowing', instead of the 'slumb[e]rous' [...]". - On stationery with printed address. - Quite spotty and some damage to upper corner of fol. 2 (slightly touching text).

To his publisher, asking for the return of an unpublished chapter about the period of "Sturm und Drang" in Germany (to be incorporated in his forthcoming Reminiscences), with further discussion about England’s difficulties in South Africa and Afghanistan: "[...] At present, the terrible complication in China, which has no doubt been accelerated by the difficulties in which England is still involved in South Africa, threatens to have further dangerous consequences in Afghanistan, whose ruler is treated very unwisely by the Government at Simla.

The tension between Simla and Kabul is very great. I hear a great deal about it through the former Chief State Secretary (Sultan Mohammed Khan, a gifted Indian by birth, whom I know intimately), who has been in England for some time, and who is on the point of going to Simla, and from there to Kabul. Would an article on China, Afghanistan, and the general situation - perhaps under the title 'New Storm Clouds' - be welcome? [...]". - On stationery with printed address..

To the "North American Review" on sending an article concerning aviation: "[...] For more than twenty years I have attentively followed aeronautic affairs, having had occasion to make an ascent for meteorological purposes, in company with Glaisher and a number of prominent French aeronauts, in the gigantic captive balloon which afterwards [...] escaped from its cable and came to grief [...] and it was through a suggestion I have made that the 'German Society of Aeronauts' was founded [...] P.S. I had at first chosen the title of 'Navigable Balloons', but I think 'Guidable Air-Ships' would be a correcter term [...]". - On headed paper.
