Contents

  • It is a good thing to keep a diary and an even better one to safeguard its secrets by writing them in code. But the trouble with Jennings' code was that it made his most innocent entries read like the secret dossier of some Eastern European spy organisation.
  • Many hilarious incidents of the Easter term at Linbury Court are recorded for posterity in the ink-splashed pages of Jennings' diary. There was, for instance the astounding excavation of an alleged Roman chariot-wheel; Darbishire's ill-fated attempt, when laden with valuable glassware to ride side saddle; and Mr. Wilkins' anguish and frustration at finding his missing mark book at the bottom of Jennings' trunk.
