of the O.U.B.C., and at the same time the subscription was raised to
£3. In consequence of this only seven boats put on.

six weeks of the term, so that the races were postponed till the next term,
but the frost breaking up were rowed on March 14, after but eight days'
On the second day Pembroke upset, and on the third
