Dr Bloxam, Vice President of Magdalen came with a Mr Donnison, a legal gentleman from London, who was accompanied by his son, whom he wished to place here. He had been under the care of Dr Bloxam’s brother, whose ill health has obliged him to give up pupils. As all seemed right, the boy was left; – a docile boy apparently. They dined. Dr Bloxam pleased with progress, and said the President would ask him plenty of questions.

Monk returned from Ireland last night. Gives the most satisfactory account of the organ. The ‘swell’ alone is completely finished: it is the grandest thing he ever heard. Every thing promises to be first-rate. It is now certain that we cannot open the Chapel till Easter, but there is little doubt, please God, of getting into it then.
