Liddell has made a form between the Upper Shell and Sixth, called the Remove, which form now enjoys the same privileges in the shape of fagging as the Upper Shell (that was)-
The Upper Shell now is precisely the same as the Under (That was) having no privileges of fagging-

During the Water Season another attempt was made to get up the Old Westminster and Eton race, but on Freeman putting the question to Liddell, he said that it was to be put down in the respective Ledgers that he was never to be asked again.

Liddell refused to give an Early Play for the “Battle of Inkerman” saying that it was a painful subject to give a holiday for.

The consequence of my having been shown up for tanning a fellow (which he most justly deserved), Liddell told me that the only way a Head Townboy or Head of a House had of keeping order was by showing up to the Masters; I told him that it never had been the custom of Westminster to do so, and therefore I could not think of being the first to break through an old rule. He said however that he did not care about fellows being tanned for any blackguardly or beastly action-

A great many races have taken place this half, as well as cricket matches, Liddell very liberally giving “early Plays” when asked for among the Principal Races were between our Eight and the Leander, and also with the Old Westminsters. For further practicalities see Water Ledger & cricket etc.-
The other day “Dickson”, the present Captain of the QS, took it into his head to go and annoy the first eleven game at Fields, and on the ball hitting him by chance, after he had been warned, he threw it away, at the same time stopping where he was before; wherefore one of the Eleven, Adams (in 5th Form), cut a ball at him; the next day he expressed attention of tanning Adams up school, which being told to me, I went and tried to convince him how entirely he was in the wrong, but as he would not listen to anything I said, I left him, telling him that if he dared hide Adams up School I should not let the matter drop: he did not do so, and thus ended the row- I must say that no Captain of Westminster was ever more cordially detested than he has been, since he was first made so—
