The first Protestant Bishop of India, Dr. T. F. Middleton, sending a donation (400), which would enable him to become a governor of Christ's Hospital, described it as "The noblest institution in the world." And the words of Leigh Hunt (an old " Blue ") explain better than any comment this lavish praise: "Perhaps there is not a foundation in the country so truly English, taking that word to mean what Englishmen wish it to mean-something solid, unpretending, and free to all. More boys are to be found in it who issue from a greater variety of ranks than any school in the kingdom. Christ's Hospital is a nursery of tradesmen, merchants, naval officers and scholars alike; it has produced some of the greatest ornaments of their time."
