|Letter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 12 August. Chamberlain responds to Gardiner on the subject of education. He writes that free schools in country villages are not only for the benefit of the middle class, 'of whom there would only be one or two individuals living at any time'. He adds that all education in the middle ages was classical, and it is 'only recently that the classification of education has assumed its present form'.
