Dacre Balsdon, "Open Letter," in To Nevill Coghill from Friends. Collected by John Lawlor and W.H. Auden (London: Faber and Faber Ltd, 1966), pp. 23-37 (at 36):
I remember a dinner of the Adelphi Club in College, the President's solemn recital of the Club's grace, 'Edite, bibite, Collegiani, post multa saecula pocula nulla,' and the silence which followed being punctured by your, 'Ah, let us be merry and poculate.'
