Dear Sir,- 

Owing to the fact that certain changes have 
been made in the Authors prescribed for the Matriculation 
examination since the last issue of the Circular of the 
University Matriculation Board (No. 24) in September 1915, 
the accompanying amending circular was prepared last month 
for distribution to the schools. 

Before these new circulars were distributed 
it was discovered at the Department that there was a certain 
discrepancy between the prescription in Honour Latin and in 
the Latin of the Upper School examination for Entrance into 
the Faculties of Education. When the matter was brought 
to the attention of the Superintendent, he wrote to 
Mr. Brebdner on September 6th. A copy of that letter is 
enclosed. On the 7th inst. Mr. Brebner replied that he 
would place it before the Committee at the earliest possible 
moment. On enquiry, I fail to find that a reply has yet 
been received. 

In the meantime, the enclosed Circular 
(No. 24 (a)) has not been sent to the schools and, accordingly, 
those teachers who may govern their courses by the last edition 
of Circular 24 will be misled on the several points in which 
changes have been made. I did not think it wise, however, 
to send out the amending Circular while the question of 


further changes was still under consideration.

Dear Mr. Brebner,- 


Referring to a letter addressed by you to 
Mr. Anglin, under date of the 17th ultimo, I wish 
to call your attention to the fact that, according 
to the best of my recollection, the arrangement 
made in your Calendar in regard to the Caesar for the 
Honour Matriculation examination is not that agreed 
to at the Matriculation Conference last Christmas. 
Objections were taken to the prescbiption of 
Caesar for the Honour Matriculation examination and 
several expedients were proposed in order to prevent 
what some appeared to think would be a lowering of 
the standard. I proposed that the Caesar should 
be prescribed and that it should be intimated that the 
paper in prose would be based upon it, but that no 
questions on the Caesar would appear on the other 
papers. This Professor Robertson accepted as a 
solution of the difficulty. It was held that the 
Caesar would contain sufficient vocabulary and 
sufficient idioms to allow a suitable paper in 


prose to be prepared even at the Honour stage. 


Yours very truly, 


James Brebner, ESqey BeAcy John Seath

of him as being rather an exceptionej} boy. Would you let Mr.
