Scope and Contents

The lecture was addressed to students upon their graduation, and Thomson's sense of humour is in evidence throughout. He advises the students not to rest on their oars, but to keep learning throughout their life and to widen their knowledge; to know the character of their pupils and be an example to them; and to work hard and subsequently benefit from the satisfaction attained from hard work.
