Scope and content

Refers to the fact that HS helped him to get examiners the previous year, and appeals to him again for help. Announces that he wants five men, including Sidgwick. Remarks that Sidgwick's brother Arthur is the examiner of the Sixth [Form]. Explains his needs; examiners to take the Greek and Latin unseen and the Latin verse, for various classes. States that he would gladly give the Sixth Examiners £20 each, and to each of the other examiners £15. Is anxious to have Sidgwick and three of the men of the previous year. Believes that Peile is to be [at Rugby] when the examinations are to take place. Would like Jackson to come.
