Typewritten copy of letter. Informs him that he sent Bryce's note to [Henry] Fawcett, being away from Cambridge, and that the latter had already sent his draught bill to Hammond. Claims that he has always been in favour with 'Compromise with the Right Centre' in Cambridge, but that Fawcett is opposed for several reasons, with which HS counters with, amongst other arguments, that Gladstone wants it. Lays out the concessions he would be willing to make to the Nonconformists, including the maintenance of Anglican service in chapels and of officers specially appointed to conduct it, restriction of official theological teaching in Colleges to clergy of the Church of England, and restrictions of headships. States that he intends to talk to Bateson about the last concession. Asks Bryce what metropolitan liberals he represents, who are drawing up a bill, and what bill it is. Adds that the 'Right Centre' at present want tutorships, and claims that they cannot grant this.
