Extent1 item
DescriptionDated 3 October. Asks advice on partly private matter; Rev Mich. Buhler, one of their college tutors, had studied at the institution and was prevented from going to India because of chronic headache; he studied at Tubingen under Professor Evalds and has for five years taught Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic and Sanscrit at Basel; as his health does not allow him to be a missionary he would like to come to England for a time to improve his English; he has little money and Basel cannot officially send him as they did Mr Ostertag; would there be any possibility of his being a tutor at Islington for a time, teaching Oriental languages.
