To Miss Macgregor, citing the Edda and at some length a point regarding Freyja and vidar: "The Edda only says that Freyja wandered to far lands and unknown nations to seek Odur, 'weeping golden tears for him'. In the same passage Gylfi's incantation, 35, her necklace (Brisinga-men, which is interpreted now as being made from Rhine-gold of the Breis-gau) is mentioned. No meeting with Vidar is recorded either in the poetic or prose Edda. I do not remember a tale of this kind [...]".
On stationery with printed address.
Very spotty and some damage to lower corner of fol. 2 (not touching text).
