We received a challenge from Eton the other day in which Standing, the Captain of the Eton Boats, said that their Head Master did not object to the race between the two schools being continued, and he felt sure that if Liddell could consent a race might be brought about. Our Eight however, feeling certain that Liddell would not give his sanction wrote back to say they could not race.
