"We have, in a former number, recommended a new rule...It is to make six out all out, instead of making three and all out. A player who is caught out on the fly, being marked 00, or two out to his side."


Porter's Spirit of the Times, March 7, 1857.


Seen by Porter's as a compromise solution to the controversy over continuing the bound catch rule.
