To school the blubbering boy must go." Bishop Shuttleworth. Through Roundell Palmer's charming lines on the four hundred and fiftieth birthday of his old school, there runs a note of rejoicing in its unchangeableness. The world around had moved, but Winchester still spoke the old words and trod in the ancient ways. In this, its five-hundredth anniversary, the jubilation loses something of its force.The scholar of half a century ago, visiting his boyish haunts, finds many an old surrounding swept away. The constitution of his college is recast, its numbers doubled, " school " and " chambers " as he knew them are gone, white ties and bands are modernised, the black-gowned troop of brothers has ceased to climb St. Catharine's steep, and troops past Wykeham's tomb more rarely than of yore ; a host of time-consecrated observances, picturesque it may be and suggestive, not seldom brutal and absurd, yet combining to create a Wykehamic f/6os distinctive and unique above that of other public schools, are honoured only in the breach to-day. Belonging to a generation which was nurtured in these rude experiences,, and which the fleeting years must ere long wholly disarray, I have attempted to record in a form biographic and descriptive, for thebenefit of younger Wykehamists—for the amusement possibly of an outside public— some details of a vanished past. I became virtually a scholar of Winchester at three days old. Myfather, playing whist in New College common room, was congratulated on the birth of his son. "Yes," said he jestingly, " and how pleasant if one of you some ten or twelve years hence were to nominate him on the foundation at Winchester." A Mr. Giffbrd who was present took him at his Books Books ~~ Literary Collections~~ General Ancient-Ways~~William-Tuckwell Kessinger Publishing Company
