Scope and Content

Broadbent) to a small printer, who will produce a book under his supervision for publication in London; "Falkner's specimens", which Carpenter finds unsatisfactory; some Whitman art; Chorlton and Knowles of Mayfield Press, for whom Carpenter requires an address; arrangements for a meeting between G[eorge Merrill] and Sixsmith in Scotland, where [mathematician and Glasgow Socialist, Robert] Muirhead also hopes to see Sixsmith; arrangements for a walking trip to the Lake District; the value placed on Sixsmith's comradeship by Carpenter and the two Georges [Merrill and Hukin]; [Dr R.M.] Bucke's book C[osmic] C[onsciousness]; and Carpenter's arrangements with Clarke for an anthology [possibly Iolaus: an Anthology of Friendship edited by Carpenter, 1902].
