During the Summer Half (1840) the King’s Scholars challenged us to Play them at Rackets which we of course accepted and selected two from the T.B.s as they did on the part of themselves. Their Players were “Somerset” (Captain); “Merewether”. Ours were “Curteis” & “Osborn”. We played a Rubber & beat them, winning the 1st & 3d games easily. Curteis played particularly well. The K.S. Not being satisfied of their inferiority challenged us a second time, which we agreed to cheerfully. The result was similar, we winning the 2d & 3d games & the Rubber. After this the K.S. Challenged us no more.
