1p., 4to. On aged and browned paper, chipped at extremities, but with the 30 lines of text intact. The piece, which does not appear to have been published, begins: 'The question which, it seems to me, the students of a great University should put to themselves as they proceed to the election of a Lord Rector is this: What is the holder of this high office supposed to represent?' He is endorsing Chesterton because he believes he possesses an 'elusive quality': 'the most universal element which your five thousand students share: that lovable, care-free, courageious, romantic, adventurous, rollicking spirit that still crowns your youthful brows! [.] Austen Chamberlain might represent your cautious and conservative instincts better. Sidney Webb might explain to you more precisely the meaning of the Gold Standard and its economic results. But if you want your whole self represented, that self you all share, whether you come from Kelvinside or Cowcaddens, from Pollokshields or Port Dundas'. The piece winds up with a quotation from 'your present Lord Rector' and a quotation of four lines of verse. Chesterton was unsuccessful in the 1925 election, Sir Austen Chamberlain being elected Lord Rector. N° de ref. de la librería 16801
