Max Muller to Josephine Butler

Scope and Content

Photocopy of letter. Written from All Souls, Oxford. Cannot manage a visit at the moment but hopes to visit them before the vacation is finished.

Administrative / Biographical History

Date: Reckoned from other known dates:

1857-1865 Butlers at Cheltenham

1857-1869 Dr Frederick Temple Headmaster at Rugby

1864 Death of Butlers' little daughter, Eva

28 Aug 1858 Max Muller elected Fellow of All Souls

Date must be between 1858 and 1864 (before Eva's death)

Say 1860 - 8 Sep 1860 was a Saturday. That would give him time for a visit to Dr Temple the following week, visits by friends to him at Oxford, and leave some of the long vacation for him to visit the Butlers at Cheltenham

Biog: Friederich Maximilian Muller (known in England as Max Muller); Dr Frederick Temple; Prof Wilson (at Cheltenham)
