During the cricket season of 1871 "W. G." was responsible for ten three-figure innings, and in thirty-five completed innings he registered 2739 runs, with an average of 78. These figures he has never beaten. This aggregate of 2739 stood as a record for twenty-five years, until last year I had the honour of beating it with an aggregate of 2780. I append full details of "W. G.'s" cricket in first-class matches in 1871.
