Sunday March 7th

Went down to Oxted by the 1.10 with Father. F and K have been amusing themselves by making up an examination paper on Dickens, horribly difficult unless one knows one’s Dickens. Here are a few examples: ‘Whose regiment charged in a hollow square with the women and children and the regimental plate in the middle?’, ‘What food does a proud stomach reject?’, ‘What did Hamlet’s Aunt discourse on?’, ‘Who dropped her parasol down a grating?’, ‘Who got his head in a tight place?’ I do not think many people could answer these straight off.
