A letter from the Proctor

This letter has a note from Joseph Needham written on it to say "Keep this carefully for while we have it, I don't think we need ask for permission again."


                                                                                                                  January 25th 1929.

Dear Dr. Needham,
                    In reply to your letter of the 23rd inst and the proof giving details of The Round I should certainly be prepared, in view of what you say as to the membership, to give the necessary Proctorial Licence when you are proposing to hold your dances.

                    Perhaps if I say this now it will save your Mr. Cann the trouble of waiting upon me.

                                                                                                            Yours sincerely,

                                                                                                            T. C. Wyatt.

Dr. J. Needham,
Gonville & Caius College.

The 1942 minute-book records "Among the Records there has been found a letter dated January 25th , 1929, which, in a note by Joseph Needham, is interpreted as practically a Carte Blanche from the proctors."

We certainly haven't asked for permission recently.
