Cricket Ground

3. For the amusement and increase of the Scholars,
if it that should should the object in the judgement of the Dean and Chapter that
appear of sufficient importance to claim a have a proper object of provision of the part of Government,

expressly for the for that purpose. In the most celebrated of them [+] [+] and as far as I can
