Today (Ap. 30/51) our elevens played a match at Fields with an Old Westminster eleven in wh. we were victorious, the game being decided by the first Innings (v. Cricket Ledger). It may here be mentioned, that Liddell who it seems had led us to believe that we were to have an early play, sternly refused to grant it when the time came. He however at the petition of the Captain, with great liberality (?) granted us a late play.

On Thursday Aug 8th a match came off at our ground between our eleven & the Charterhouse. The challenge was given on our part; but some of the eleven thought it too low on the ground of Charterhouse not being a publick school. Blagden (Captain) & Ingram (1st Mon.) refused to play; but afterwards agreed, as Liddell on hearing it refused to give the early play on the following Saturday if they persisted in not playing. Liddell, I suppose, took it personally being a Charterhouse fellow. The match was not terminated but we had much the best of it when the wickets were drawn, as may be seen in Cricket Ledger
