Excerpt from School-Boy Life in Merrie England: Pen-Pictures of the Great Public Schools of England, With Sketches and Stories of Famous Scholars
Some of these schools, while affording free shelter, subsistence, and a classical education to certain bene ficiaries, are attende... d by a far larger number of boys who pay handsomely for the instruction received, as in the case of the Oppidans of Eton College, who, as the name implies, live in the town while pursuing their studies at the school. To this class belong Rugby, Harrow, Eton, Westminster, and Winches ter schools. On the other hand, Charterhouse, St. Paul's School, Merchant Taylors', and Christ Hos pital are purely benevolent institutions, Whereat the tuition furnished is equal to that Of any of the sister hood Of schools, though the benefits bestowed are by no means regarded as charitable. They are sup ported by ancient endowments from the crown or from wealthy citizens, or by incomes derived from rents and other investments.
