A handful of shivering spectators witnessed the game of yesterday afternoon, and were rewarded by seeing the crimson meet with defeat. Of our last year's 'varsity nine only one man, Wiestling, played in his regular position, and four new faces were to be seen on the team, those of Choate, Holden, Bingham and Young. With such a nine it could be hardly expected that a strong showing would be made, and the victory of the Cambridge team did not greatly surprise those who were present.

Cambridge went first to the bat, and scored a run on a hit, a wild pitch, and an attempted put-out. Harvard retired in order. The visitors scored three runs in the second inning, aided by three bases on balls, a hit, a passed ball, and an error. Harvard again failed to score. A hit and two errors netted Cambridge another run in the third inning, while the crimson was unable to get a man farther than third. The visitors closed their score in the fourth, by scoring a run on a base on balls, aided by a hit and a passed ball. Willard now saved Harvard from being blanked by hitting safely for two bases, going to third on a put-out, and crossing the plate on an error by J. Bertsch. Neither nine added to its score in the two following innings, and the game was called at 5.10 on account of darkness.

Willard, Smith and Wiestling did the best work for the home nine, while Ryan and Mahoney played a strong game for the visitors. The cold wind was the cause of many errors.
