Transcription of article


The Vicar gave a lecture in the Old School on March 21st, which was illustrated by numerous views shewn by the oxy-hydrogen limelight. Mr. J. G. Wood very kindly managed the lantern. The subject of the lecture was "The Planting of Christianity in Britain." The audience was small, and the receipts did not pay the expenses for two cylinders of gas from Birmingham, hire of piano, and carriage of slides lent by a friend in Oxford. There was a deficit of three shillings and sixpence, which was paid by the Vicar.
