Tuesday February 9th

. After Hall Low and myself wandered around Cloisters and lay in wait for Dr Scott who had promised to take us up into the Muniment Room which he accordingly did. He was very nice and showed us various things, treated an early Charter with some stuff which made the faded Ink come out. He showed us a set of bills for the Election Expenses of 1771, apparently there are the complete sets for many years and incidentally the signatures of the boys ‘sped away’ to the two Varsities. Low had never been up there before.

I am really delighted to hear Smurthwaite is returning tomorrow to ‘his beloved Westminster’ as his Mother writes.
