Witton was not impressed with the delivery of his lecture on Emerson, however his lecture on Carlyle & hero worship was much more interesting . He was able to meet with Conway after the lecture and pass on Clark's letter to him. His last lecture on The arrest and development of religions was a splendid and noteworhty lecture.
