From G. H. Darwin [after 13 June 1871]1
New University Club | St. James’s St.
Things are going well at Camb. I think— It appears that the Seniority held that I had not seceded but have reserved the point as to whether the Act of Parlt. disqualifies me till next Friday & on this I cannot think that they will decide against me—2 Jackson3 writes that they are considering rather how to keep me in than kick me out.— I have been advised to send Cookson’s opinion to Burn & I’m going to see Hacon about it4
Yours affectly | G H Darwin
Discusses his position at Cambridge, which is apparently under threat.
