Reading Experience:

'. . . I do not at the moment see how I can be of advantage to a Schoolmaster's Year Book. I think fancy articles are a mistake in a Year Book. You want nothing but serious informative or practically speculative stuff, all of it strictly topical & expert. In the Literary Year Book the Editor has made a grave error by introducing miscellaneous articles which are not informative & have nothing to do with the year. '
