Notwithstanding the order given against ditch leaping by Mr Liddell, this old custom took place as usual & was well attended. I think it a very beastly practice, and also a senseless one and should not have given my sanction to it had I been in school. I advise future Head town boys to do their best to put a stop to this custom which cannot be productive of any good to anyone.

Between Xmas and Whitsuntide 1850 a silver racket was bought by subscription throughout the school to be played for annually by TBs & QSS. The competition for it was great and the play was well contested by the various competitors. Balfour, W.S. however succeeded eventually in winning it.
