In consequence of a fellow of the name of H.H. Davis head boy of the T.B. but a Home-boarder, have mal-appropriated if not the whole, certainly a part of both the Cricket and Football Money, neglecting to pay both Bentley and Foote and this bringing obloquy on the TB, it was deemed expedient by the whole Sixth Form that in future no Home-boarder should be allowed to gather either the one of the other, or in fact any subscription whatever —-

Those with an asterisk at the end of their name are Home Boarders of whom Davis, Findlater and Tennyson were the only ones invited by the Boarders. [to the Sixth Dinner – see No. 73]

After the ineffectual attempt that was made last year the close of the present was distinguished by the revival of the Sixth Dinner after an intermission of 6 years; if directed with a little caution there is every probability that it will again by established into a custom.  It was held as formerly at the Thatched House and three of the most respectable Home boarders were invited.  Mitchell was president and Davis, Home boarder, vice president.  The Dinner was served at 6 o’clock precisely and was kept up with the greatest spirit until 9 o’clock.

P.S.

Ld Kerry, Lendon and Levett were absent at the time of dinner, from Westminster on account of ill-health.

The annual match between the TB and KS was played as usual in Tothill Fields which was won by the latter by 8 Wickets.  Dr Goodenough as he had before frequently intimated forbid the customary dinner and would only allow a luncheon between the Innings.  The following were the players.

Rainback
Vincent
Abel Lendon
Burrell
Wrottesley
Mure
Hastings Lendon
Hudson
Bates
Fawkes
Durell

The success of the KS may in some measure be attributed to the absence of three of our men who all played in former matches two of whom would have bowled in the present.
