This return match, which was set aside for the benefit of T A Brown was, drawn after the Bedfordshire declaration set Northamptonshire a victory target of 225 in two hours.
The game between the two sides at Northampton in June had been won by Northamptonshire.
For the home team, there were 18 fours, 6 threes and 5 twos in Hodgkins's 130, and 6 fours in Brown's 59.
In the Bedfordshire first innings, Hodgkins and Brown added 100 for the third wicket, and Hodgkins and Holmes-Brown 93 for the eighth wicket.
For the visitors, Thompson's 73 contained 8 fours and Kingston's 67 included 9 fours.
Match reports state that Thompson was handicapped because he had not fully recovered from the injury that had kept him out of the Staffordshire match.
