Cassels, who, like Smith, went from Repton to Cambridge and was now a Church of England parson; Cecil Polhill-Turner, an old Etonian and an officer in the Queen’s Bays; his brother Arthur Polhill-Turne; and lastly C. T. Studd, acknowledged as the most brilliant cricketer of his day, and possessing all that wealth conld offer. These were the men who have gone down in history as ‘The Cambridge Seven’.”
