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”.

H.H O’Farrell has gained an open scholarship at Pembroke Coll. Oxd. And also passed into the Indian Civil Service. H.D.S Pennington [probably H.F.D Pennington 1866-1870] passed into the Indian Civil also.
In the absence of Hill (through illness) I make the following entries. H.F.G Bramwell (H.B. Rigauds) got an open scholarship at Lincoln College Ox., he was fourth out of 52 candidates; it is to be hoped that this together with Mee’s scholarship will have the effect of raising the numbers at Westminster.
