Copious MS notes, incl.: ""The Midas was the first oration of Demosthenes which Macaulay gave me, as a schoolboy, to read ...The marks on the outer margin are copied from his Dindorf edition."" MS dates of reading: April 13 1917 and Jan 16 1923. ""Finished --- on the 30th Jan 1923 - the day on which a more exulted culprit than Midias was brought to account. How these masterpieces grow upon one"s appreciation at each reading! I am now just halfway between 84 and 85; - nearly 70 years since I read the Midias for the first time."" P.125: ""Macaulay gave the the Meidias to read while I was at Harrow. His choice of books which he lent me while at school is significant. The Meidias, the Gorgias, the Plutus of Aristophanes, Quintus Curtius, Dialogues of the Dead of Lucian. When I was preparing for the Gregory Scholarship examination he gave me Juvenal with a translation on the opposite side.""
