This year (1839) some alteration was made with regard to the course of teaching in school. Webber (the 4th Master) was appointed to half the under school; and the Upper Elections in College went with the Town Boys to Mathematics in School. Mr Preston having declared that the task of teaching both Upper and Under Elections was more than he could stand: and another reason was perhaps that the shell did not sufficiently remunerate Mr Hodgson.
