It will be seen on looking back to Arts. 38 and 47 that in March 1863 Scott decided that no Townboys in the Under Remove should have power to fag. In July 1863 he reversed that decision but gave no written order. Mr Marshall refused to allow the Under Remove Townboys in his house to fag. So in November I went to Scott about it and in February 1864 he gave me a written order of which the following is a copy.
“In respect of the rules made Oct. 1860 the arrangement of forms having since been altered and the under Remove formed, the Rule is henceforth to be
- That the right of fagging belongs to Townboys in the VIth form and Upper and Under Remove, provided they are above 16 years of age.
- That no Townboy who is in (or above) the Upper Shell shall be liable to be fagged.” Chas B. Scott Feb. 1864”
I have put the order in Scott’s writing in the box in which these ledgers are kept.
