I am glad to say that we are now able to enter candidate for the Oxford and Cambridge Certificate examinations. By a special arrangement we are allowed to take up our School work in place of the subjects set by the examiners, and the School examinations will suffice for all. But we shall have to do our papers in Grammar, unseen passages etc. late or at some “centre”.

We had an early play on March 1st as usual – no leave out, though it fell on a Monday. Lord Lansdowne asked for one on the 17th. We also had leave out on Easter Monday, as an equivalent to Good Friday.
On the 27th of March the Eight had leave to see the Oxford & Cambridge race.
We had an early play which was asked for by Mr. Mowbray, an Old Westminster who had taken office under Lord Derby; April 10th.
This year the early play which we usually have the day after the last challenge, the Min. can. early play, unfortunately “coincided”, as Scott said, with one that he had promised us to honour Mr. Southey, who has obtained a first class at Oxford; we could not get both from Scott.
