TitleLetter from Michael Faraday, Royal Institution, to Sir James Clarke
Date8 April 1848
DescriptionStates his belief that the College of Chemistry should be devoted to the teaching of chemistry and that subscribing members should derive no personal advantage from it. Conversely, the College should not be an undue burden to the members and the house in Hanover Square 'is both a great expense & unseemly'. Notes the pages in Clarke's last paper that he admires.
