This year Williamson endeavoured to put a stop to the sixth dinner by a threat of severely punishing all who attended it.  It was nevertheless carried into execution and was held at Ginger’s hotel in Bridge Street.  Homeboarders as usual were invited.  The dinner was served up in a manner to give universal satisfaction at ½ past seven and was kept up till ten.  All the boarders attended with the exception of 4 who feared to join the party.  Their names were Templer, Cornish, Parker and Harrison — Abm Borradaile President,  T Blackall Vice President.
