Exhibition

.

My son has got an exhibition at Oxford. An allowance of meat and drink; a benefaction for maintenance. (Latin, exhibitio, an allowance of food and other necessaries, “alimentis exhibēre aliquem.”)

“They have founded six exhibitions of £15 each per annum, to continue for two years and a half.”—Taylor: History of the University of Dublin, chap. v. p. 198.


“I crave fit disposition for my wife,

Due reference of place, and exhibition.”
