D6

3 letters [originally with a note by EVQ Caird's acceptance of the Mastership]. All are from Edward Caird to Sir William Markby concerning Caird's appointment as Master.

        • [1] The University, Glasgow, 10 Nov 1893, ALS [1 leaf]. Thanks for the offer of the Mastership, but apprehension about accepting it. Can he think it over?
        • [2] The University, Glasgow, 12 Nov 1893, ALS [2 leaves]. Kind messages from Strachan Davidson and others have made Caird feel that if he becomes Master, he will have their support, and therefore he accepts the Mastership. However, can he take it up next March because of commitments in Glasgow, and make the odd visit to Balliol until then?
        • [3] The University, Glasgow, 8 Feb 1894, ALS [1 leaf]. On using furniture in the Master's Lodgings.
