Sir: In order to correct a contrary impression created by some of your correspondents, I would like to make it clear that the University of Cambridge had for some time accepted the case, on strictly academic grounds, for establishing a post for the study of Theology and the Natural Sciences, and that Susan Howatch's generous benefaction was made in response to her discovering that we were actively seeking funds for such a post.

Yours sincerely,

DAVID WILLIAMS

Vice-Chancellor
