OF TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE,
“See what a work the four and twenty letters have done for themselves in
TO THE SENATE
UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE.
When the Master of Trinity did me the honour of recommending me to your notice, as a Candidate for the office I now hare the privilege of holding under you, he informed me, that you would expect me to publish a Report of the results of my inquiries on the State of Primary Education in Europe.
I hesitated at first whether I should offer you this Report at the close of the period during which I shall have the honour of holding my present office, or whether I should present a separate Report at the end of each year's travels.
The progress which measures of economical legislation have recently made, has induced me to decide on the latter course, as I cannot but think it very necessary to press this subject on the attention of the Public, at a time when we are embarking in a course of legislation, which will render the adoption of some great system of education more imperative upon Government
