Received letter from Mr E. Robinson, a Wykhamist, M.A. Balliol who wants me to join him in taking two houses for pupils at St Leonard’s. He invited me to meet him in Beaumont Street, Oxford this morning. He appears to be staying with his mother in law Mrs Rowden, widow of the late Registrar of the University. Of course I could neither meet him nor telegraph to him. I wrote, however, a pretty long letter, saying I could meet him by appointment after Friday next.
Visited Elizabeth Holland (not at home).
Mr Davies and I walked round Pig & Whistle and Pound Lane.
