Sewell came out with the Sub Rector of Exeter. Before going away in the evening he sent Walter Baker into the School Room to send his nephew to him. Surprised at the delay which occurred, he went in, and there found Elliott (major) and other students were detaining Walter, and pulling and dragging him about, while Reynolds was standing near and looking on. Sewell was very much displeased, and told the elder boys that it was a disgrace to do or suffer such things, – that they were worse than worthless, and that he having been the person, who recommended them to me, would immediately acquaint me that I might look upon the recommendation, as ceasing to have any weight.
