Letter from J. Oliver Stephens to Sir James Frazer

The Presbyterian College, Carmarthen - As a former Advanced Research Student at the University of Cambridge, asks for help in attesting to the value of the degree to the University of Leeds, where he is applying for the Philosophy and History of Religion chair; has been told by the Registrar that he was one of the last men awarded a B.A. in Advanced Research before the Ph.D. was instituted. Says his knowledge of Hebrew will be useful, and remembers Frazer's story of Robertson Smith and how the language had helped with research into Primitive Religion.

Letter from P. Giles to J. G. Frazer

Emmanuel College Lodge, Cambridge - He has been busy with the admission of undergraduates and it is plain the University is no longer able to cope with the numbers who wish to join; the dinner on Shrove Tuesday was a great success; it was a pity that Marett felt the need to attack Elliot Smith on such an occasion [his Frazer Lecture]; but Elliot Smith doesn't appear worried by it.
