Sample Letter of Resignation

13 March 1889

To the Right Honble Lord Mayor,

My Lord Mayor,

I shall be obliged by your submitting to the Court of Common Council my resignation of the Headmastership of the City of London School to take effect next Michaelmas.

The responsibilities of the office must, under any circumstances, heavily tax the energy as well as the intellectual qualifications of the Headmaster for the times being; and the burden has been increased by the important changes in the course of study introduced by the Court last year, changes which--though beneficial in themselves, if well supervised controlled and directed--require increased rather than failing powers in the Headmaster, to supervise, and possibly to modify or develop them.

To discharge these responsibilities, after upwards of three and twenty years of service, I no longer feel fully competent. Were I to attempt the task, the kindness of the Court towards me who has served them for a considerable period to the best of his ability, would I dare say, tolerate me for another five, or even for another ten years. But the past history and the high reputation of the school preclude me from thus trespassing upon tolerance. One who is content to be tolerated is probably not fit to be the Headmaster of any school, and certainly not of that which bears the name of the City of London.

In the hope that the prosperity which has attended the schoool for the last fifty years may continue without a break, and with every expression of respect and gratitude to the Court for their unvarying support and encouragement of the school, I beg to place my resignation in their hands.

I have the honour to be, My Lord Mayor,

Your Lordship's most obedient servant

Edwin A. Abbott.
