Went to Oxford to vote for public orator in place of late Dr Mitchell, Principal of Hertford College. I voted for Mr Nettleship of C. C. College as also did Mr Hughes and Mr Jackson, tutor of Worcester, who had canvassed me. But Mr Dallin, of Queen’s, the only other candidate beat him by nearly 200 votes. The poll was open from 2 till 7.30 pm.
