You well advocate the establishment of a well-endowed scientific University in London. Perhaps, however, London is like a mass of dough which needs leaven. Why should not the Corporation of the City of London be that leaven? Perhaps, however, the Corporation needs that some one should employ a yeast-germ in order to start its fermentation. Or, if it be lawful to compare that august body to a pump, perhaps a handle is necessary which some one may work. Why should not the yeast-germ, or the handle, be found in Gresham College?
