Excerpt from Memories of Eton and Etonians, Including My Life at Eton, 1854-1863, and Some Reminiscences of Subsequent Cricket, 1864-1874

I have often been asked by many of my old Eton friends why I did not write my recollections of Eton and of the subsequent cricket in which I took part, but as my literary productions hitherto have not extended beyond a few articles on Cricket, Golf, and Natural History, and I was rather diffident of my capabilities with the pen, I for some time felt very shy of the undertaking. At last, however, as everything in this world must have a beginning, I thought I would attempt the task. Luckily I have a fairly retentive memory, and have a very distinct recollection of most of the events which I have recorded - nearly as distinct, in fact, as if they had recently happened, although I am sorry to have to confess that many of them must be dated nearly forty years ago.
