The T. B. & Q. S. boatrace was rowed this year, the TB’s won by 2 lengths. For particulars see the Water Ledger. H J Roberts

For a long time we have been very anxious to have the rowing again established here and (though a great many objections were raised as to the distance we should be obliged to go before getting to a part of the river safe enough for the outriggers etc. the means of getting there, the expense and other things of this kind) this terms arrangements were made with Salter at Wandsworth and with the S.W. Railway Company. Our boats are kept for us at Salter’s and a compartment (2nd cl.) is reserved for the fellows, who get off as soon as possible after prayers & go over Vauxhall Bridge to the station to meet the 5.25 down train & come back in the evening in time for 8 o’clock lockers.

E. Mee (T. B. Rigauds) got an open scholarship at Corpus Oxf; this is the first open scholarship that has been gained by the school for a very long time (if ever before).

We had a holiday on the Sat. before Easter Passion week for this honour so that we were able to go the Oxf. & Cam. Race; whereas before there were some doubts as to our having a holiday at all on this day as Monday was a Saint’s Day and Easter was so near.
