Ditch-leaping was this year, in order to lull the suspicions of the master, deferred to March 17th when this ancient custom was kept up by a large assemblage of fellows. In consequence of there being names at 11 o’clock (as usual on early plays) we were much hurried, and the KS fearful of being late returned sooner than usual having gone about half the usual distance. But the T.B. with great spirit determined to go the usual round which they accomplished in excellent time.
