The Principal of Brasenose and Mrs Harrington, with a Mr Hogg, brother of Mrs Harrington came and asked leave to see the College. Mr Hogg is about to have Robert Elrington for his Curate. All highly pleased. A Lady Churnside with several daughters were brought out by Mr Rawlinson, – mere curiosity hunters, – a class of people to be discouraged. I did not know who they were, but hearing a title mentioned, was very civil. It turned out that they were the family of some physician attendant upon Lord Hertford at Paris; and, to say the truth, I did not think their style quite up to that of lords and ladies.

Messrs Gordon and Morris of Christ Church came to call upon me. Showed them over the organ, which caused great surprise. Very nice men; did not stay long.

This was a weary day, but we don’t mind trouble, unless when imposed by mere loungers.
