Philip Hardwicke, the architect, and Major Davis, came to the College. (I imagine they left the same day, although Hardwicke may have stayed, as he was a great friend of Sewell and mine. I know nothing of the other at this distance of time. 27/2/74)

Letters received from Todd, Morton and Wade (evidently concerning the critical condition of St Columba’s, 27/2/74)
