Typewritten [copy of letter]. States that he gave her sister 'as full and exact account of [his] views' as he could. States that after thinking over their conversation and re-reading her letter it occurred to him that there was one point on which he slightly disagreed with her phrase regarding her views on whether Holloway will or ought to be 'the leading college', and gives he views on this basis on the question of whether she should take a position at that institution. Believes that the prestige of her name does affect the matter somewhat, in that 'it inevitably makes [her] acceptance of the post imply a conviction in favour of Holloway, which would not be implied in the case of an ordinary professional person, naturally and legitimately aiming at professional advancement'.
