Broad comments on Moore's suggestion that Russell be appointed as lecturer in Moral Sciences. After pointing out the advantages of such an appointment, Broad notes: "With all his faults Russell is a man of genius, who has shed a great light on philosophy and has profoundly influenced most of us. His mistakes have been those of a man of generous and enthusiastic feelings, warped by a singularly unfortunate childhood and education, and like Achilles, he has been 'the strongest of all his enemies'." However, he does not know how he might vote on the matter.
