Cassiciacum? Praeferendus Newman! (3)

Did Blessed John Henry Newman say  

“It was Oxford that made me a Catholic”? Or did he say

“It was the Fathers that made me a Catholic”? Or did he, as I rather think, say both?

It is certainly true that Henry Manning said, referencing Newman, that “it is the old Anglican, patristic, literary Oxford tone transplanted into the Church”. And who durst say that an Archbishop of Westminster can err?
