13Jul1872, Eton Beating Harrow at Cricket

LONDON, Saturday, July 13th, 1872.
—Cricket match ended with eclat at 6, Eton beating Harrow, 7.27 to the good, with 6 wickets to go down, Alfred and another taking their bats out. Alack ! this admitted of neither Bob nor Edwd. having a 2nd innings ; but Edwd. fielded nicely. Alfred played a rapid and brilliant game, getting 19 in exactly Charles' old style, and was immensely applauded. It was a proud moment. All 8 brothers were on the ground, and M. and me.
