King’s College Record

June 1879
That Room-Mate of Mine

…(In his fondness for) cricket. Joe never misses an opportunity for practice, and I might almost say further, never comes in from the field unscarred. Whatever pranks the ball may play, Joseph seems to be the victim of, as his sprained fingers, bruised shins, &c. can attest; and seldom during the season is he seen without one or more of his fingers painted with iodine. These accidents, however do not dampen his ardour, or in any way lessen his interest in the noble game.

(attributed to W.F.Vroom)
