Diary

Handwritten text

1873, October 17th, Friday

Called on Mr Kitchen and Mr Ward. Went to Queen’s College with Mr Hutton. I don’t think it likely that “Tats” will submit to discipline.

1873, October 22nd, Wednesday

“Union Jubilee Banquet”. Many old members present. Tickets 25/-. I got no dinner worth mentioning. All was very badly managed.

1873, October 25th, Saturday

Gave Johns and de Trafford leave to dine out and go to theatre afterwards. I resumed duties at New College this evening; very hoarse, but no sore throat.

1873, October 26th, Sunday

Joannes domum aliquanto ebrius revenit undecima hora. Trafforduis revenit dimidia hora ante undecimam.

Johns returned home somewhat drunk at the eleventh hour. de Trafford returned half an hour before the eleventh.

1873, October 27th, Monday

Swift McNeill and Charles Gibson came to lunch.

Joannes et Traffordius ad opus non reverterunt ante nonam et dimidiam. Joannes dormiebat quum studere deberet donec undecimam horam posteaque.

Johns and de Trafford did not return to work before half past nine. Johns was sleeping when he was supposed to be studying until after 11 o’clock.

I wrote to them both, telling them they must not be out at night at all, in accordance with my agreement with their parents.
