Had a talk with Mr Swale about an artist for a fellowship, about which matter Sewell had spoken to him; but we agreed that the movement was quite premature, though he though he could name a person who might do. He went away, leaving great regrets behind.

Mr Daubeny1 called to see Richards, who is his nephew, I believe.

1: Charles Daubeny, scientist, founder of the Oxford University Natural History Museum, Keeper of the Physic Garden. He was very involved in the reform of education at the university to include the sciences and in 1845 had founded Cirencester College of Agriculture. See entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
