Annotated in Berrbohm's hand in pencil upper left " 'We are realising that education, as a Latin poet said, is something that changes mind and will. On all sides this doctrine of education is being preached today. We are busy deflecting the mind and will of adults and children alike from the paths of ignorance into those of instructed reasonableness. Girls are learning house-craft, mothers the art of keeping children healthy, boys use their hands, men the use of book'. Times leading article, March 31, 1919,"
