The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 83

To His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury

To His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury.

We embrace the earliest opportunity of telling your Grace the impression left upon our minds by your most gratifying visit to our School.

We never expected the honour of seeing the Archbishop amongst us, and we never shall forget the kind words of encouragement used to stimulate good actions in our future life, nor shall we ever forget those few words spoken when your Grace alluded to our drill, calling to recollection the influence of a spirit of prompt obedience in forming our character, and contributing to our future happiness and success.

We also feel deeply the short prayer offered for our future conduct and guidance under providence that we may lead an honest and industrious career.

(Here followed the signature of 100 Boys). Saltley Reformatory, Small Heath, Birmingham.
