To J. T. Knowles   31 July 1874

Summary

Asks whether it would be possible for Contemporary Review to republish an article on language from North American Review [119 (1874): 61–88] by William Dwight Whitney which answers F. Max Müller; would pay expense of printing if necessary.

CD has been abused in the Quarterly Review for "amazing ignorance".

To J. T. Knowles   5 August 1874

Summary

CD understands JTK’s reasons [for not republishing W. D. Whitney’s article]. Cannot undertake to write anything himself; he needs rest and is unwilling to enter into controversy.
