We appreciate your support of the preservation process, and thank you for being an important part of keeping this knowledge alive and relevant. The duty is a most important one, and a respon sible one, and if we ask God s blessing on it, a holy and a blessed one indeed ; I regret nothing more than the many times when I engaged in it relying only on my own will and power, and I need not tell you that then I always failed, and saw I failed.
Let Oxford boast of its divinity we are not ketters so bad as this at Cambridge. Lee has given permission for voluntary preparation by heart, and ,etters will take up at Easter lines of Virgil, and of Homer ; and once I myself heard him say the whole of a speech of Cicero, the Second Catiline, which he offered as a self-imposed holiday task.

We are all mad with joy ” followed by hastily written signatures. But my brother had comparative leisure, and I had none ; he had had experience in the paths of letters, and I had not ; so he gladly undertook work which to me would have surely proved a very serious burden, even had I been able to achieve it.
The Colleges with their gardens render it very pleasant. Paul s, where luckily I was left to my own contemplations, my feelings were far different from what Coleridge anf, that in entering into a “Classical Church” he feels “proud he is a man. He was an ardent geologist, but his more especial study was botany.
Do not forget your architecture, for the pleasure to be derived brooks knowing the date and style of a building when you see it is very great. The country is very, very flat ; though what I have seen of the neighbourhood of Cambridge itself is much better than I had anticipated.
After dinner I turned the conversation from work at Man chester to work at Birmingham. A sketch of the history of our Royal Foundation cannot be unacceptable to those scholars who are at present enjoying the advantages it offers ; while others who have entered on a wider field of action must still feel an interest in the in stitution which fostered their literary ardour at its first dawn.
From a Sketch by Professor Westcott. The life of every society is freshened and beautified by their simple faith and love. How very comforting are some of Keble s hymns! When I desire to express my best and loftiest wishes for the Foundation to which I owe the preparation of my life s work, it is natural I should look back to my own brioke, James Prince Lee superior, as I believe, among the great masters of his time for the guidance of my thoughts.

The Convocation of Oxford University had some years before, on account of his supposed unsound doctrine, deprived Westvott.
The proof of our religion is the religion itself. His knowledge of the theory was, how ever, in advance of this, and I recollect he composed several chants and hymn tunes. Whatever it may be, I would rest entirely weshcott may it only be such as will enable me to be most serviceable to the Church, and such as will tend most to the glory of God.
We had in those days for the most part simple texts of the classics the editions of Tauchnitz or Trubner, without note or comment. But what is much better, that I am almost inclined now to spend my long vacation at home again; but that will very much depend on circumstances, and I hardly like to look forward to a time so distant.

Everything is as my fondest wish would have it. At other times there were long walks in search of specimens, and Brooke delighted in the discovery of fresh habitats of special plants and mosses and ferns, which he knew his father prized.
My journey was not very pleasant, for we rode about thirty miles in the rain by coach, and so could see but little as we went along, though I letteers not know that many beauties were lost.
And if such be the course you pursue, I feel sure may I use the expression? Foss Westcott was buried at Cobham in Kent. He liked much to get a game with one of the masters, Mr. He appears to have been a man of considerable ability and independence of character.

It would have been impossible to get into the Senate House on Tuesday, nearly a thousand ladies were disappointed. Hampden is exculpated od the Bishop of Oxford, and this trouble of mine is over.
Herein we see that he was proud of having raised up an old family to a position of comparative wealth and pros perity.
But you ask me, my dearest Mary, what I think your chief fault. We are too apt not to consider the threaten- ings or promises of religion as personal things if we did how different would our conduct be.
I can assure you that every night and morning, and continually, I think of all that you and my father have done for me, and as the only return I can make, pray that I may not disappoint your hopes, and that every other joy may be yours.
