Tom Cribb stands as the representative of a sport so peculiarly English, which played for long so important a part in our national development, and was supported and fostered by so many of our great men, that it deserves a niche in the national remembrance. Mr. Boase, in his account of Cribb in the National Biography, says that ‘as a professor of his art he was matchless, and in his observance of fair play he was never excelled; he bore a character of unimpeachable integrity and unquestionable humanity.
