Excerpt from Journal of a Residence at the College of St. Columba in Ireland: With a Preface
The present volume is occupied chieﬂy with a little Journal, kept by the writer during a residence of some months in the College of St. Columba in Ireland, an institution, in the foundation of which,to his great and lasting thankfulness, he was permitted by Providence to take a part. The Journal was written, as will be obvious, without a thought of publica tion, roughly and irregularly, and sent off from time to time chieﬂy for the information and amusement of one individual. Subsequently it fell into the hands of some private friends whom it interested, as little unpretending details of real life generally do interest. More recently, a few more Copies were struck oﬂ to meet numerous applications for it from persons of high authority, and for other reasons on which it is not no cessary to dwell. And now, though with the greatest diﬂidence and reluctance, I have consented to give it full publicity, in the hope that it may suggest perhaps some ideas on educa tion generally in our public schools but chieﬂy that it may be useful for a work, towards which I am now bound to contribute all in my power. Within the last six months it has pleased Almighty God to fulfil a long-cherished wish expressed in the last page of the Journal. The College of St. Peter has been established at Radley Hall,near Abingdon, on the same model as St. Columba's, with the same indivi dual at its head, who made St. Columba's the admiration of all who saw it, and under the Control of the Bishop of Oxford, the Diocesan, as Visitor.
