Carnarvon - WW is glad that HJR is also employed taking students on an educational tour, and hopes HJR has been 'running up a proper quantity of Scotch metaphysics and Greek history with your lines and circles. If your metaphysical examiner be a man of the same kidney as ours was[,] your best plan by far is to read the article metaphysics in the Encyc. Brit. till you can write out a regular syllabus of it[,] for such would the answer to our paper have been - at all events it will be as good a guide as you can have. As to the philology the Port Royal Latin grammar and Harris' Hermes are the fountain for wh. they generally derive it'. Brown's [Thomas Brown] paper was derived from the first of these works. Will WW find HJR at Cambridge in October? WW has accepted the office of lecturer [in mathematics].
