No. 141

On Saturday Dec. 17 there was a concert in College Hall. In consequence of the limited space there were only 150 tickets issued. It commenced at 7.30 and was finished a little before 10. P.M. A wedding march was played by the Rev R. F. Dale and W. A. Ellis in honour of Rev. E. Gilliat, who is to be married on Jan 5. A song was composed by Mr Gilliat & set to music by Mr Dale, a dialogue between a young and old Westminster; F. Rownall taking the part of the ‘old’ and G. A. Bolton of the young. Haden’s playing on the violin and Maitland’s on the piano were both exceedingly good. Amongst others, the ‘three Chafers’ sung by Pownall, Lucas, Bray and Chitty, was loudly applauded by the audience. There were suppers afterwards in the boarding houses & in College but no singing was allowed.

A. P. Hill.
