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.

This year the Town Boys acquired the privilege of reading Epigrams with the Queen Scholars in Hall at the end of this half. As this is never till Tuesday night it will be of no use to T.B.s; The Q.Ss stay till Wednesday morning; but there will only be one or two T.Bs staying for the Tripletts who will make use of it.
