Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Preparation of the Child for Science
My Dear Cousin,
Three-quarters of a century ago your father, during a visit to his native land, infused into the minds of a few young mathematicians, among whom were Charles Babbage and J. Herschell, certain ideas about the nature of man's relation to Unknown Truth which underlay all science in ancient Asia, and which he had learned from Brahman teachers. The seed which he then sowed has borne abundant fruit in English Mathematics. Of his subsequent work in India some have sought to express their appreciation by giving his name to a great inaccessible snow-peak. You and I think that we shall more truly fulfil his ambitions by making as accessible as we can to little children in all parts of the Empire that open gateway to the Unseen at which he stood in perpetual adoration to the last hours of his life.
