Charles West Cope letter to Richard Redgrave, 1874

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 21
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

Marked private. Cope inquires after "next Thursday's meeting." Cope says he has spoken with "our […]" and that this person stated "that he believed there was nothing but the naked proposition to be brought forward. […] to abolish." Cope writes that "the Sunday question was ousted in council." He discusses a "JCH." And asks Redgrave "is then this a time for us to go back? To reduce our Schools, now so well advanced & well attended to their former state of neglect?" Cope states that he has been told by "James" that when "there is a visitor, the students are very unpleasant." A postscript at the top of the letter reads, "Do you think we should expose his having written that impudent letter about his son's rejection?" Perhaps referring to JCH.
