King’s College Record

Nov 1879

Foot-Ball and Cricket, it is to be feared, are both virtually, over for the season. The recent rain and snow have rendered the grounds so soft and muddy that they are totally unfit for playing on. It is strange that the cricket ground, which is one of the most elevated parts of the College lands, should with the slightest fall of rain or snow become almost as soft and impassable as a marsh.

Long walks in the country are at present the order of the day; the Falls, the Forks, Winkworth, and the Plains are the most favoured places. It might be supposed that
"The beautiful season,
called by the pious Acadian peasants the
summer of All Saints"
was the most agreeable time for walking; but the Indian Summer seems to be very slow in visiting Windsor this year, and our pedestrians have not, as yet, enjoyed the best walking
