It is probable that none but the more distinguished of those who leave us would thus be able to assist in education, but this does not amount to giving Teacher-Fellowships as a reward for ability. In all cases they would receive the higher emoluments, not for having the power to lecture, but for lecturing. The representation of my scheme in the latter part of the letter is still more incorrect. Its true nature will be best illustrated by an example. Suppose some recognised society of working men in Liverpool wished for lectures on heat. They would raise amongst themselves a certain sum of money--the amount of which would be fixed by the Central Committee at the Universities--and apply through their Secretary for a lecturer. If some high Wrangler who lived there in possession of a Fellowship were willing to undertake the course, he would be considered as having qualified himself for the emolument of a Teacher-Fellowship during that year.
