Content description

Would be delighted to pay a visit; thinks he could get leave if de Ros's father wrote. The Eight went up yesterday, taken by Mills as Lutrell is very ill. Walked with Antrobus afterwards. General pleasure that Shaw-Stewart does not steer after all his bragging; he ran up the bank abusing the steerer. Lists the boat captains. The hurdle race has not come off because of the frost; went skating at Virginia Water. 'Yesterday, Andrew [Rouse-]Broughton spoke for the 1st time amid shouts of laughter while he eyed the Provost as if he was going to eat him.' Will have to sap at the law. Encloses leaving books from Antrobus and Pattison. Mentions 'row' at Christ Church with 3 Etonians (named) expelled for gambling. PLACE: Eton College
