THE Nine was well supported last Saturday: let this support continue, and we shall not feel ashamed of our record. We are sure that those who accompanied the Nine do not regret having done so. The cause of our defeat was very evident. Do not accuse us of attributing it to "hard luck." Mr. Folsom did not pitch with his usual skill, and by his wild pitches and Yale's heavy batting, the game was lost. Considering what a strong pitcher Mr. Hutchinson is, our Nine did very good work at the bat. We have no cause to feel discouraged, and are confident Yale will find it no easy task to win the next game.
