The communication in the last Crimson on the subject of the cricket eleven seems to be entirely uncalled for. Last fall the eleven certainly did poorly in the matches played, but the year before it was very successful and this year its showing has thus far been good. In its first match with the Longwoods, the best club in Massachusetts, Harvard was beaten, but if George Wright had not played on the Longwood eleven the score would have been very close. The last match with the Longwoods, when George Wright did not play, resulted in a draw. Our team, however, had the advantage, considering the number of wickets that had fallen.

It cannot be expected that Harvard or any other college will come immediately to the front in a game like cricket, which must be played for years in a place where it has been previously unknown, before a high standard of play can be reached. In our opinion, the cricketers have thus far done more than was to be expected of them, and the time is not far distant, we believe, when the Harvard team may dispute the claim of the Longwoods to be the best eleven in the State.
