The Eunuchus (which was the play fixed for last year, but not acted *) was repeated this year acted with great spirit, some of the performers playing their parts in first rate style. H.R.H. Prince Albert was present on the 3rd night & expressed himself much pleased. I am happy to say that this year there was no repetition of the unpleasant circumstances which attended the play at Xmas /50. V. 399.

On Monday (July 8th/51) we had a race with an old Westminster crew, from Battersea bridge, to Putney. It was a splendid race our crew being beaten by half a boat’s length. We had originally arranged to row on the Thursday previous, but the old Westr crew not being able to get together on that day, we chose Friday. On asking Weare’s leave however, the objected to it on the score that Saturday was confirmation day, so in spite of the earnest wishes of both crews to row, we were compelled to defer it to some indefinite period. It came off however on Monday without the knowledge of the masters. For particulars vide Water Ledger.
