Aulus Gellius : Noctes atticae

Many marginal notes include: "The marginal notes and lines are from Macaulay's Deux Ponts edition. NB I did not read through Aurus Gellius: but observed the contents of the chapter, glanced through the text if it excited my curiosity, and carefully read all, and all around, Macaulay's notes and marginal lines." "Wallington July 16 1918" "I am beginning to relish Aulus Gellius as much as my uncle did. (See the letter to Ellis of July 25 1836. Life and Letters Chapter VI)." "August 10 1918 George [G.M. Trevelyan] came to Wallington from Italy this morning." "August 13 1918 - Janet and the children left today - George yesterday". "August 12 1918 Wallington I say farewell to Aulus Gellius with regret; and am inclined to think I like him even as much as Macaulay. Perhaps a little better, because at 80 one is more of the age for trifles than at 35; and prettier trifling than the setting of the dialogues I hardly know."
