Portée et contenu

On embossed headed notepaper for 7 Wilmslow Road, Withington, Manchester. In regards to Bromwich's letter, is 'anxious to promote advanced studies generally and as far as I can. The kind of lecture Bromwich proposes 'will be useful to a varied class of men'. Will go into the question properly when he takes up residence in early July; they will be able to 'discuss the question more fully' then. Thinks there 'will perhaps be a number of special courses for advanced students if the time-table & lecture space will allow of it'. Is 'glad' to have Bromwich's 'suggestion of a course that will have [?] to bring the Engineer, Mathematician & Physicist in closer connexion'.

Hard to know when 'anything definite will occur in the Math Dept. there', and to 'guess the policy of our unknown Com[mit]tee who may be appointed some time in the future'. Likely to be 'a good deal of discussion on the policy to be adopted for in addition to a possible two in the University, there may be another in the the College of Technology'.
