Sewell unexpectedly came out to breakfast, bringing with him the Revd. Wodehouse, (I do not know how to spell his name,) whom he wished to see the College, as Mr Wodehouse is thinking of founding a school in Wolverhampton for tradespeople’s sons. A very pleasing person, – good churchman, – much pleased with our work, and taking deep interest in it.

(Sewell told me since that it was the Rev G W Woodhouse, Vicar of Albrighton, Shropshire. That it is not he, but a friend, who is going to found the school. Said that St Peter’s was the most affecting sight he had ever witnessed, more like a vision than a reality.)
