Cambridge University Tennis Court
Greeted at Cambridge by John Burnett who is chairman of the Newmarket Club and with whom we are staying tonight and who kindly marked our match. After a close match on the Green Court and an extremely welcome shower, we rapidlye repaired to John's lovely house in Willingham. His wife Jane who later joined us had left us a fantastic cottage pie and hand-picked blackberry and apple pie, eagerly consumed along with a bottle of Leamington claret and followed by John's Highland Park malt whisky. Much discussion about Sir Charles Rose's association with the Newmarket court and the liklihood of him being Toad of Wind in the Willows. Our many thanks to John and Jane for welcoming us into their home and seeing us safely on our way.
