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.
