AN EXCHANGE OF COMPLIMENTS Edifying- Letters Between Univer- sity Dignitaries. Extraordin&ry correspondence between Sir Marchant Williams, warden of the Guild of Graduates of Welsh University, and Prin- cipal Griffiths of the University College of South Wales has been published. Sir Marchant complained of not having been given an opportunity of joining a com- mittee for the purpose of making a. wel- ding present to Sir Isambard Owen. Principal Griffiths refused to recogniae the right of Sir Marchant to question his actions. Sir Marchant, in reply, "let him- self go" as follows :— "At a very interesting public function you declared (quoting the words of a well- known County Court judge) that you would be satisfied with the following inscriptiofi on your tombstone: 'He was an infernal fool, but he did his best.' "Now, speaking for myself, I have but little patience with fools, especially when I thev do their best. "I can tolerate them only when they do not do their best, for then I feel grateful to them for sparing me the painful conse- quences of their possible activities. "I am not disposed to dispute your right to choose your own epitaph; but if you I expect me and others to suffer you gladly, you must not often tTeat us to your best performances."
