Elected Cox. He was to have been ordained on a curacy within the Diocese of Oxford, – but the Bishop kindly gave him to us, and this day I received a letter from him to say that he would ordain Cox on this title. This is a most valuable privilege. One cannot help thinking of the difference between our treatment here and in Ireland.

Examination terminated. Most satisfactory. The boys’ advancement in scholarship, and especially in ancient history and geography, is very general, and very considerable.
