Group II - General Note

The material in Group II of the Jowett Papers was all found within Balliol long after the material in Group I had been packed away by Evelyn Abbott. Much of it was recovered by EVQ at various times (see Introduction Section I for more on its history). When JHJ examined these papers in 1979, he found eleven separate groups, which he called 'Additional Jowett Papers 1-11'. These groups have been renamed II A-K, but their contents remain as before. However, within each group, a certain amount of rationalisation has taken place.

Many items in Group II resemble some items in Group I very closely, as coming either from BJ's own papers or the Abbott and Campbell papers. It is not known how, why or when they became separated.

Since JHJ produced his list of these papers, various other material has been found which, although it has never previously been catalogued, nevertheless seems never to have left Balliol. This material is therefore catalogued as II L-O. It is intended that future Jowett material found in Balliol will be placed in this group.

Group II Class A - General Note

There is no indication of where the material for this very miscellaneous class was found. Items from both BJ's own papers and the Abbott and Campbell papers are included in it.

A1

A collection of mostly undergraduate exercises in Latin and Greek Prose and Verse composition, some translations from the English, and others original compositions, all found wrapped in a large leaf of paper, inscribed in an unknown hand Questions and Exercises. I have sorted the contents into four sections: A1/1) exercises by BJ, A1/2) exercises by identifiable writers A1/3) exercises by unidentified writers A1/4) miscellaneous material. The types of paper used vary greatly in size and quality.

A2

More material connected with BJ's teaching, similar to, but not found wrapped up with, A1.

  • [1] 22 passages in English, all except 2 with instructions to translate into Latin or Greek Prose or Verse (one of the 2 exceptions has a Latin version on the other side of the paper]. All are in unknown hands, ten of them in the same hand that wrote most of A1/3/6. Of these 10 items, 2 are copies of the same passage. Of the other items, 3 are copies in the same hand of the same passage, and one is stamped Received at the University Press Oxford 16 Nov 88.
  • [2] 98 small leaves with essay questions, all presumably intended for college work.
    • [1] 84 leaves in BJ's hand. Only four leaves are dated (to 15 Oct 1859, 24 Oct 1861, 6 May 1862 and 17 May 1862), but the others contain examples of BJ's writing from the 1840s to the 1890s. They divide into three groups: (a) 29 leaves of questions to be answered in English, on a wide range of topics e.g. classical and modern literature, philology, history or philosophy, (b) 21 leaves of questions, of which some are to answered in Latin or Greek, others in English, with a similar range of subjects [6 leaves have the Latin essay questions written in another unknown hand] and (c) 34 leaves of questions, all in a rougher format; first drafts for neater versions? [most of these in ink, a few of the drafts in ink or blue crayon]
    • [2] 1 leaf of essay questions in Matthew Knight's hand [n.d., but presumably after the late 1860s], similar in content with BJ's above. A few corrections have been made in BJ's hand.
    • [3] 13 leaves of essay questions, written in perhaps 9 different hands, and varying greatly in size of leaf and format. Two leaves are written in the same hand which wrote the Latin questions for BJ above. The subject matter of the questions is very similar to BJ's. Three are dated, to Lent/Summer term 1886, Busby Prize 1881, Collections Dec. 1874 (the last two leaves were clearly examination papers for these), but there is no means of dating the rest.

A3

Questions asked of BJ by undergraduates at his lectures on Greek philosophy with his answers. These questions are tagged together by brass pins into 4 groups, designated here as A3/1-4, and presumably each one forms a set of questions for an individual lecture. All these questions received answers from BJ. There are several such items all over the Jowett Papers (see I D34 for a complete list of them). The items are only partially dated, but since all the undergraduates named below matriculated at Balliol between 1887 and 1891, the great majority in 1890, the day of the week makes 1892 almost certainly the year in question. The names are given as they were written.

  • [1] 19 questions, asked by P.E. Morrell [dated Thurs 9 Jun in another hand], F.H. Dale, J.W. Critchley, E.W. Powell, F.A. Oldaker, R. Scott, H.C. Moore, A.H. Grant, [illegible], A.T. Cunliffe, C. Bailey, P. Hanson, R.T.N. Younger, Ernest Walker, John E. M cFadyen, H.W. Milner, H.A. Cohen, [S.] Laing, and [V.H.G.] Collins.

A5

Fragments of sermons preached by BJ [originally in an envelope inscribed by EVQ BJ. Fragments of Sermons]. They are preserved in three bundles, each tied separately. This bundling was probably done soon after BJ's death. As with another collection of sermon fragments, I D40, no attempt has been made to re-order the fragments; however, some leaves seem to contain final versions of draft sermons in notebooks in I A-D, and it might be possible to check these links more thoroughly. Almost all are undated, but BJ's hand suggests that they were all written between the late 1860s and his death. Most are written in ink, a few in pencil.

A6

A7

Letters from BJ to his mother and sister Emily [originally in an envelope inscribed by EVQ BJ's letters to his mother & sister]. Contents sorted by EVQ, who sometimes wrote the year on a letter.

Some letters from other people to BJ are preserved in this collection. It seems that BJ would send his mother letters which he though she might enjoy (many of them concern his meetings with royalty, for example).

Along with these letter were four envelopes which had become detached from their letters. Two were easily returned, but two more, both addressed to Isabella Jowett and postmarked Askrigg 24 Jul 1864 and Oxford 2 Nov 1866, could not be linked to any letters.

  • [1] Emily Jowett to Benjamin Jowett Snr. n.a., Sunday 5 Oct [1845, 1851 or 1856] ALS [1 leaf]. Emily regrets to return unopened a book of Cantiques [probably a Protestant book], as she cannot accept their religious validity.

Documents connected with BJ's younger brother Alfred Jowett, when working in India. No reference seems to be made to BJ, so that only a brief guide to the contents is provided. Many documents were written on thin paper, which is now in such delicate condition, with such faded ink, that they are difficult to read [items originally placed in 3 envelopes by EVQ].

It would seem that after Alfred Jowett's death in 1858, all his effects (including, probably, I G15/16, letters to Alfred from his family) were sent back to England. Even if they did not go directly to BJ then, I G15/16 and II A14 would certainly have ended up in BJ's possession by 1882, when he was left the last surviving member of his immediate family.

Letters, mostly addressed to Abbott, from friends and acquaintances of BJ contributing letters and reminiscences. EVQ had begun to sort them into alphabetical order; this task has now been completed. However, where a letter enclosed inside another one, then even if the alphabetical order is broken, it is still listed next to it. If a letter merely discusses arrangements to copy, send or receive documents, no summary is given. All letters are ALS, in ink, and 1 leaf long unless otherwise indicated. Where Abbott's name is in square brackets, the letter was only addressed to 'Dear Sir'; because of the context, I have assumed that they were written to Abbott. Dates in square brackets are suggested by EVQ.
