Yesterday afternoon there was a strong wind blowing the length of the Carey Court and it was much too cold for tennis, yet the finals in the doubles were begun at 2.30. Pier and Wrenn won the first set easily by good, sharp net play, 6 - 2. The wind prevented any accurate lobbing.
In the second set the score stood 2 - 1 against Read and Chase. when the rain, which had been threatening, came on so heavily as to prevent further play. It had been agreed that if the match was interrupted it should be played over entire, and the two teams settled on Saturday afternoon at two o'clock as the time for the final contest.
