Content Description

He discussed Spielmann's circular with Hugh Carter, who agreed and would sign the document. They feel the amendment should be restricted to "outsiders", leaving the Academicians to vote to restrict their own submissions. The Academy is very jealous of any outside interference in its government. Dismisses the unstated objections of Sydney and Herbert Cooper, the former senile, the latter bumptious. On the plus side Davis supports them, as does Pettie and MacWhirter.
