Excerpt from Eton Reform

A sincere jealousy for the honour of the good and liberal men with whom, and under whom, I serve, and a conscious ness of being able to save from misapprehension the true friends of the great school in which I am employed, urged me some time back to publish a free commentary on certain publications, which were likely, if unnoticed, to give needless pain to many old Etonians, if not to in?ict an injury on Eton.

My commentary was intended to convey, under such re serve as my subordinate position imposed upon me, sufficient indications of a fixed and practical wish for improvement, and suggestions of particular topics for discussion amongst friendly reformers. It was not hard for a candid reader to see, that my pamphlet was written in the interests of reform and, though some people have failed to perceive this, I am perfectly satisfied with the effects hitherto produced by my publication. It has brought me into communication with gentlemen, who, having strong views of their own about the school, are wise enough to see that their views must, to do any good, be expressed frankly but courteously. Their sympathy is cheering to men who have in past years striven for reform as residents and office-bearers at Eton: and their hope of improvement is strengthened by finding, that there is in the bosom of the institution a settled and strong desire of progress.
