Maude 1828


Education, Schools, Mathematics, Gender

    Observes: 'In these days of sines and tangents, it may become the fashion to scoff at the ever-living languages; but we agree with Mr. Maude, "take away this chief corner-stone, and the temple of our future glories will be a slovenly, unregulated pile, devoid of grace, and devoted to oblivion"'. Notes that the 'conductresses of female education seem to have better sense than to question the utility of the classics'.
