The Charterhouse Match

This annual match took place this year at Charterhouse on July 21st, and was a most miserable failure. We won the toss, & Hemsley unfortunately put them in, & they succeeded in making 330 before they were all out. We then went in, when the light has changed, and could only make 50, and in the second innings 25 for five wickets.

We were unquestionably the better Eleven, but Wilks, out best bowler, ‘seemed off the spot’; & everything against us. Had we gone in first, we should have very likely made the 330 & they the 50. For further details see the Cricket Ledger.
