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.

On Monday (July 8th/51) we had a race with an old Westminster crew, from Battersea bridge, to Putney. It was a splendid race our crew being beaten by half a boat’s length. We had originally arranged to row on the Thursday previous, but the old Westr crew not being able to get together on that day, we chose Friday. On asking Weare’s leave however, the objected to it on the score that Saturday was confirmation day, so in spite of the earnest wishes of both crews to row, we were compelled to defer it to some indefinite period. It came off however on Monday without the knowledge of the masters. For particulars vide Water Ledger.
