Nevertheless, the old spirit of faith urging him again and again, he had more than once renewed his communications with Mr. Henson, and repeated visits to Market Deeping at last produced a sort of treaty between bookseller and poet.

Frederick Martin (October 12, 1861, Dartford, Kent, England – December 13, 1921, Dartford, Kent, England) was a Kent left-arm spinner who was that county's leading bowler in the early years of the County Championship. Quicker than most bowlers of his type, and without the subtle flight of Johnny Briggs or Bobby Peel's variation of pace, Martin relied more than anything on his amazing accuracy of length. At his peak in the early 1890s, Martin had as much spin as any of his rivals in county cricket, but, from 1892, he lost much of it and was generally only dangerous when the pitches gave him a good deal of assistance — something which became less and less frequent as, in dry weather, they improved rapidly through the 1890s. In his early days, Martin was a very poor batsman, but, by the end of his career, he had developed into a handy lower-order player, especially in an emergency. He hit one score of ninety against Nottinghamshire in 1897.

Martin was, in his prime, the foremost bowler not only for Kent but also the MCC, which, at the time, played many matches against counties with which Middlesex could not afford to arrange fixtures. Because of the competition with Peel and Briggs for an England place, Martin played only one Test Match, when Briggs was injured, Yorkshire refused to let Peel play and a sticky wicket meant that a left-arm orthodox spinner was essential. He seized his opportunity excellently, taking twelve wickets for 102 runs, but he declined before he had another chance of being chosen.

Martin played for Kent in only one match in 1885 but played regularly from the following year, doing excellently in a few matches in 1886 but disappointing in the exceptionally dry summer of 1887; however, in the exceptionally wet summer of 1888 he took 73 wickets at 10.83 each, including an incredible ten for fifty against Sussex. This firmly established Martin as Kent's left-arm spinner, and the following year, given much more bowling, Martin took over 100 wickets for the first time.

From this, Martin rose in 1890 to his greatest height: for both Kent and MCC, he was a formidable bowler in a damp summer and took 190 wickets for under fourteen each, including twelve in the Third Test at The Oval. In 1891, an even wetter summer, he was almost as effective, named a Cricketer of the Year by "Wisden", but was thought unlikely to do so well in Australia and, consequently, was considered for that winter's WG Grace-led tour.

1892 and 1893, however, brought a pronounced decline in Martin's fortunes. He could not spin the ball as much, but the wet summer of 1894 saw him form a formidable combination with Walter Hearne (brother of Jack of Middlesex fame). They bowled unchanged against Surrey at Catford, and Martin took eleven for 29 in the opening match against Sussex.

1895 was a mixed season for Martin, punctuated by four wickets in four balls for MCC against the newly-promoted Derbyshire eleven at Lord's; however, for Kent he was very expensive until the wickets became treacherous in mid-July, and, even then, the Martin of 1890 would have surely been more deadly. 1896 was a modest year, and, by 1898, it was clear that Martin was well past his prime, although he made surprising advances as a batsman in these years — probably due to the much-improved pitches which cost his bowling so dearly.

Martin lost his place in the Kent eleven in 1899, to be succeeded by the much more famous Colin Blythe. He was a regular umpire for two seasons in 1902 and 1903.
