Scope and content
Dalton Hall, Victoria Park, Manchester
2. VII. ’99
Dear Mrs. Eddington,
You will be interested in hearing some details of Stanley’s Preliminary. They are astonishing enough.—I have heard them today from the Chairman of the Board of Studies. In
Mechanics. Full marks
Latin. Top of all
Eng History [ditto]
Mathematics [ditto] & 60 marks above everybody else
leaving Chemistry & Eng. Language as the only subjects in which any one excelled him.
This is a marvellous record; whether he ought to know it I leave to you.
The great thing now is not to overload him; and to keep up his exercise: but I see no danger of going wrong in either respect.
In Physics ii at Easter I find he got 99 per cent. in the College Examination, making 199 out of 200. He has half the prize in Latin, the Prize in Practical Physics as well as theoretical; and the 2nd place in Math iii. A.
He will now, I trust, go in for a good physical athletic holiday. With my hearty congratulations
J. W. Graham
