Notes, topics or text 

Simpson, from Trinity College at Cambridge, declines Patricia's offer of a seat on the platform for the meeting of February 3, stating that participating in the platform implies "a general agreement with all that is said from the platform." He feels he cannot agree with all the other speakers. His other concern is that the "public presentation of a fair picture seems to me quite extraordinarily difficult so long as there are important and relevant facts which may not be alluded to in public." As well Simpson mentions that 6:30 on a Sunday evening "clashes" with the "least infrequented" services of "practically every" College Chapel and was considering declining the offer on those grounds alone, "but I thought it better to give my real reason!"
