Diaries and engagement-books by Mark Pattison. 'In July 1833', he writes, 'I began a student's diary on the same plan as I have kept up, with intervals, to the present date (December 1883). This diary only exceptionally mentions what I do, or see, or hear; it deals with what I read or write. It is strictly the student's journal'. Pattison, Memoirs, 1884, p. 119. This description is, however, only applicable to nos. 35604-10 (MSS. Pattison 1-7), which form the basis of the first half of the published Memoirs. Diaries are wanting for the years 1844-51, although quoted in. the Memoirs, and those for later years are little more than engagement-books.
