I ought to have inserted higher up that the KS challenged the TB to a rubber at Raquets in the year /43 which was contested at 9 o clock in the morning when the TBs won the first game early, & carried on at 12-o-‘clock when the KS won the two next & thus it terminated in their favour. The K.S. Players were L.S. Cramer & J Smart both then Seniors, & the TB players were R & J Prestons then in the Sixth. The last two games were won in good style by the Q.S. and by a good majority.

Soon after the Bartholomewtide Holidays a fellow by name G.O. Edwards, being detected smoking in a Tobacconists shop by Williamson, he was accordingly put down 4 places in his Election, & also received a long imposition. Several other instances have late by occurred; the first on record is, I believe, No 103 of this Ledger. G.O. Edwards was however restored after Xmas 1844.

It having been for some time in contemplation to abolish the breeches of the Q.S. & to institute trousers in their place an order to that effect was after Whitsuntide issued by Dr Turton Dean of Westminster. The colours specified were, as I understood any thing between black & white but this was of course supposed to include all colours, at least by the Q.S.
