N.B.The Examination is not to be confined to the books stated.

68. There shall be four papers in the English language, two of which shall bear exclusively upon the authors brought up

In the second language, if a classical language, there shall be two papers, of which one shall contain questions on the text-books and on the grammar, structure, and idiom of the language, while the other shall consist wholly of passages for translation from English into the second language and from the second language into English,
