Queen. Victoria was a strong believer in teach- ing Welsh as well as English in Welsh schools. On the 3,rd of March, 1849, she wrote to the then Marquess of Lansdowne: The Q'-een 'ca" takes this occasion of repeating her hope that Gaelic willI be taught in future in the Highland schools as well as English, as it is really a great mistake that the people should be constantly talking a language which they often cannot read and generally not write. Being very partial to her loyal and good Highlanders, the Queen takes much interest in what she thinks will tend more than anything to keep up their sim- plicity of character, which she considers a great merit in these days. The Queen thinks equally that Welsh should be taught in Wales as well as English." Lord Lansdowne, in reply, under- took to continue instruction in the Gaelic with the English language in the Highland, as well as Welsh in the Welsh schools, and to have a view to it in the choice of inspectors."
