This year St David’s day fell on a Sunday: we had an early play on the 28th of Feb.
There was no ditch leaping.
On the fifth of March we had an early play on Gibbert, an Old Westminster obtaining a first class at Oxford. On the 17th we had one asked for by Lord Lansdowne; & on the fourth of April (Saturday) we had one to see the Oxford and Cambridge race. The eight went up to see the race.
This year there was leave out on Good Friday. We had leave out from Sat. at 12 till Easter Monday night instead. I believe this is to be the regular rule for the future.
