No 383

On Thursday July the 18th the match between our eleven & the Mary-lebone Club took place, much to the credit of Westminster – we were prevented from having a second innings on account of the weather – so it was made a one innings match. The M.C.C. beat us only by twenty-six runs, which in comparison with last year was a great improvement. In my opinion, however, cricket will never be the standard game at Westminster, for the water is so much more alluring an exercise, as to take from the number of would-be cricketers.
