This year we had the Triplett Exhibitions for the first time. They are about £50 in value, this in number, last for three years, at either Oxford or Cambridge, & are open to Q.Ss and T.Bs indiscriminately. But Q.Ss elected to Christ Church will not be able to hold the Tripletts; a Christ Church studentship being considered too good a thing to be held with a Triplett.
There is also a smaller exhibition called Dean Thomas’ able on similar conditions.
The exhibition may be withheld if there are no candidates properly qualified in character & attainment.
The Examination Subjects for the Sixth at Whitsuntide 1857 were: Demonsthenes Olymthiacs, Livy Book III 1-58; Liddells History of Rome Pages 1-411; Sophocles Antigone; last ten chapters of the Act & last ten of the Hebrews; Homer the first parts The first books of the Illiad and the first 6 of the Aenied. Horace’s Ars Poetica & 2nd Book of Satires. Subject for the Dean Freeland Prize Latin Hexameter “Tri[?] Exodus”, Latin Prose “The advantage offering a [travel?]” Greek Iambics out of the [register?].
The Triplett Exhibitions were got by Tringham Q.S., Spencer Q.S.; Dean Thomas’ by W. Maples, BB.
