Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Wednesday, 27th January, Smith spoke of having wished to be a school master. He would like, even now, to get a bursary to Oxford or Cambridge. We talked of the difficulty which the universities are said to find in filling up these studentships. Smith ascribed it mainly to economic reasons, family demands, the insufficiency of the allowances etc? Why is it a constant of history that the older generation must fail to make provision for the changed requirements of the younger. Read - ?Peer Gynt? (Ibsen)'
