Notes, topics or text 

"In 1885 after leaving Oxford, Frank Russell made a 'grand tour' of the U.S. During a visit to Harvard University he met George Santayana, then an undergraduate, and a long friendship began between the two. Among subsequent meetings were those in 1888, when Santayana joined Russell aboard his steam yacht Royal for a journey up the rivers and canals of France, and in 1894 at Harvard again, where Santayana had become Professor of Moral Philosophy."

"24 Mar. 1887 - 9 May 1898. A collection of approximately 70 letters (all typescript copies) from Frank Russell to Santayana. There is much lively discussion of personal affairs, including Russell's matrimonial lawsuit, and many references to contemporaries. From Daniel Cory. See correspondence in 710."

The range of document numbers is .080206 to .080273.
