A challenge having been sent to the Etonians to play us at cricket a refusal was returned. Their reason for refusing us which they alleged was that they never had time to play more than two matches, and that they always played with Harrow and Winchester, so that unless one of the above mentioned schools declined the contest they could not play with us.

Musical Festival in the Abbey – June 24th-26th-28th July

At this Festival, as at the former one, the whole school had seats in the Abbey. These seats were in the Quoir, and from them little or nothing of the company could be seen, but the music was heard to great advantage. We took our seats at about half past eleven, and the music ended at a little after four.
