You have ability and you are also clever and quick. But if you run back to me for elementary facts instead of now doing for yourself, you might as well have come from a trade school and not a University; for there lies an essential difference between the two.
Of course you would be free to come to me for help with your problems _ but for the purpose of learning to work independently, to increase and consolidate your powers. And I would always welcome you. (cf. Margaret Best, in Pitt., Jan. 20, 1916).
