Collection Summary: A letter to Warr from Leslie Stephen, father of Virginia Woolf, regarding Virginia's study of classical literature with Warr. Stephen tells Warr that his daughter "has been in a very nervous state...and has given me some anxiety...I should be grateful if you would just remember to let her off with light work."

Biographical/Historical Note: Professor of literature; Kensington, England.

This letter was given to the Archives by Harold G. Love with a collection of John Ferguson Weir papers. Presumably Love, who collected Weir letters, thought "Warr" was "Weir." The letter was removed from Weir papers and cataloged separately to correct the probable mistake.
