Newman as tutor

Charles de la Pasture, one of Newman tutees in Dublin, recalled, ‘I learnt more as to the writing of Latin from a few classes given privately to the men of his own house by Newman as its tutor than I did from a longer course’ of lectures under the two professors of Latin, Robert Ornsby and James Stewart. He added, ‘to read the Greek tragedians in the same manner with Newman was, indeed, a classical treat I love to recall’.
