Category: Education   Philosophy   Literature   
Topic: [Letter from a student of Christ`s College, Cambridge, intended to complement the earlier Athenaeum account of a university education which concentrates on the academic syllabus and religious observance.

It is written in a mildly satirical style yet the Athenaeum editor takes it for an example of the moral integrity of some students which is contrary to their popular feckless image]
