Dies Veneris Saturnique Universitate Liverpoolense aderam quod Symposium Britannicum Historiographorum Criminalium eveniebat. Octoginta homines convenerunt causa amiciter disceptandi. Complures praesentationes exhibuerunt quae spectatores delectaverunt. De damnatis et carceribus et judiciis et lictoribus et puellis puerisque sceleratis et furibus et sicariis colloquebamur. Concessum adpellavi de arte qua lictores Cumbrienses ebrios adtractarent. Parlamentum ultimum maxime intererat quod omnes confabulantur de auctoribus televisonis qui historiographos arcessant ad cogitationes tradendos. Die Veneris vesperi in taberna Graeca dapsile cenavimus. Symposium valde est convivialis et sapiens et eruditum.
Orationes Arcessandae: the Call for Papers.
On Friday and Saturday I was at the University of Liverpool for the British Crime Historians’ Symposium. Eighty people met for friendly discussion. Several gave presentations which pleased the audience. We were conversing about convicts, prisons, courts, the police, child offenders, thieves and murderers. I addressed the meeting on the topic of how the police in Cumbria used to deal with drunks. The final round table session was very interesting because there was a general discussion about TV productions who call upon historians to share their expertise. On Friday evening we dined splendidly in a Greek restaurant. The Symposium certainly was convivial, intelligent and erudite.

Abhinc sex annos cursus linguae Latinae in Scholā Puellarum Lancastriense incipitur. Guidonē magistro puellae diligentes studiosaeque in classes post horas scholae discent syntaxem et verba et litteras Latinae.
Interea Guido ipse Universitate Keelense rebus delictorum sive criminologiā studebat donec anno MMXIII laurea doctoris ei adjudicata sit. Abhinc dies quinque Universitas Keelensis Guidonem illuc vocavit ut disciplinam criminologiae tradat. Hic consensit et Kalendas Septembrias incipiet Keeleā docere. Guido dolet scholam discipulasque Lancastriae relinquere. Ei paenitet quod modo dies paucae supersunt in quibus omnes valere iubeat. Guido, magnopere Latina docenda fructus, caritatem ingentem discipularum magistrorumque scholae habet. Omnibus fideliter “valete” dicit.
Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School
Six years ago the Latin course started at Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School. With Mr Woolnough as teacher, hardworking and conscientious girls have learnt about the structure, vocabulary and literature of Latin. At the same time Mr Woolnough has been studying criminology at Keele University, until he was awarded a doctorate in 2013. Five days ago, Keele invited Mr Woolnough to teach criminology. He agreed and will start to teach at Keele on September 1st.
Mr Woolnough is sad to leave the school and the pupils, and regrets that only a few days remain to say farewell to everyone. Mr Woolnough, who has gained so much from teaching Latin, holds a strong affection for the students and teachers of the school. He is saying a heartfelt ‘farewell’ to everyone.
