Scope and content
Trinity Lodge, Cambridge - Regrets he cannot give a lecture on the Great Exhibition and its effects on the future as he has not been one of its organisers, who will have a better idea of its effects; believes that Prince Albert only meant to describe the type of person to give the lecture, not to point to Whewell specifically.
