23May1870, University Tests Bill

LONDON, May 23rd, 1870.
—Dear old May dined with us, having been to the House to hear the University Tests debate. Of course the motion was carried by a huge majority, whereby fellowships, tutorships, everything except headships of colleges, are thrown open to Jews, Turks, infidels, and heretics. I can not like it, do what I will !
