(ii) A passage, headed 'Sept. 2nd. 1899', describing in what lay the secret of Brown's 'happy working'. (Folio 2.) (iii) Notes on Hamlet, intended for 'An Essay in Essential Criticism', but bearing no close resemblance to the article which was later submitted for publishing (see MS.8180, folio 62). This section also includes several loose sheets of notes. (Folio 5.)
