It having come to Goodenough’s ears by some means or other unknown to us, that the fellows loitered about the Red House both previous to and after going a Ditch Leaping and that one or two fellows indulged rather freely in Spirituous liquors he had thought fit to forbid Ditch leaping but it is to be hoped (as it is not the first time it has been forbidden and carried into effect the following year) that the fellows will still keep it up although perhaps not in quite so public and exposed a manner.
The annual match between the TB and KS was played as usual in Tothill Fields which was won by the latter by 8 Wickets. Dr Goodenough as he had before frequently intimated forbid the customary dinner and would only allow a luncheon between the Innings. The following were the players.
The success of the KS may in some measure be attributed to the absence of three of our men who all played in former matches two of whom would have bowled in the present.
