WILTON OF CUTHBERT'S: A Tale of
Undergraduate Life Thirty Years Ago. By the Rev. H. C. Adams, M.A., Vicar of Dry Sandford, Berks, Author of “Hairbreadth Escapes,” “Schoolboy Honour,” etc.
With Eight Illustrations by J. Lawson. Crown 8vo. Price 5s.
“ Wilton of Cuthbert's" is a story of Oxford Undergraduate life, thirty or forty years ago, before the days of Moderations and Law and Modern History Schools; of Volunteer Rifle Corps, and Athletic Sports, and Unattached Students—when the Union held its debates in the back room of Wyatt, the picture dealer; and Undergraduates flocked to hear Mr. Newman preach at St. Mary's; and men would no more have walked the High Street in cricket flannels and boating dress than they would have been presented at Court in them. The story avoids almost entirely the theological discussions of the day, but describes Undergraduate life in all other particulars. It introduces some real occurrences of note, as viz., the uproar at the Commemoration of 1843, and the famous seven-oar race at Henley in the same year. It is dedicated by the author to his old fellow collegians.
