The New London correspondent of the Norwich Bulletin writes the following: "It is about time for the representatives of Yale and Harvard colleges to come here and agree upon the preliminaries of the race to be rowed next summer. To be sure they know what the course is, know the race is to be rowed here, and by consultation with Daboll's almanac could decide on the day and hour without coming here, but they always come and we are always glad to see them come. By the way, when the river is bridged at the point what are we going to do with the race course? It will spoil the finish, and, that spoiled, the whole course is spoiled, for we can't have a straight four mile race if the finish is above the point. There would be no good place to see the finish if moved away from there, and the whole pleasure would be spoiled. Well, if the bridge is built the race will have to be rowed elsewhere, that's all."
