which, with your permission, I will relate in detail. He asks for information regarding John Bristow's supposed Survey of the Lakes, and gives an extract from Tymms's Family Topographer. Tymms, no doubt, has been misled by the faulty construction of a sentence at p. 476, vol. i. of Hutchinson's Cumberland, where S. Y. R. will find these words : —

"Mr. Clarke gave an account of one John Bristow, a patriarchal character of his village (Stainton), who, at the time of publishing his Survey of the Lain, was 94 years of age," &c.

The pronoun his, in the foregoing sentence, has for its antecedent, Clarke, not Bristow; and Clarke's Survey of the Lakes is not an uncommon book. I have seen a copy in the possession of a descendant through females of the said John Bristow, who lives on his ancestor's property, " a prosperous gentleman," and points with piyde to the paragraph respecting his nonagenarian ancestor; indeed, he adds that an ancient cat, which had scalped many generations of her natural enemies, and an elderly cock that had grown grey in the service of this senile household, are improperly omitted from the grand summary. J.

The Peatts, Baronets Op Colesiull, County or Berks (3"1 S. v. 174.)—From a pedigree I possess of this family, copied about the year 1818-9, out of a MS. Visitation in the British Museum, made in 1665, I find that Richard, second son of Sir Henry Pratt, the first baronet, had an only child Margaret. Your querist must, therefore, be under a mistake in claiming to be descended from him. He may, however, find a clew to the inquiry as to how the "china jug" descended to him, in the fact recorded in the same pedigree : that Elizabeth, the sister of the said Richard, married—1. Edward Baker of Tew, in Somersetshire; 2. Henry Pratt, of Weldon, in Northants; 3. Edmund Beale of London; and 4. Francis Phillips, of the Middle Temple, London, Esq. D. B.

Saints' Names Wanted (3rd S. v. 166.)—I observe, in the "Notices to Correspondents" at this reference, that the editor cannot discover in any list of saints the names of SS. Romolo, Remigio, and Bacco. The first is St. Romulus, a martyr; whose name appears in a Latin book, with figures of saints engraved by Herman Weyen, and printed at Paris. The saint is represented there in a cope, and wearing a mitre; and an arrow, broken in his breast, denotes the mode of his martyrdom. It appears however, from Fleury, that he was only a sub-deacon; that he lived at Diospolis, and was beheaded by Urbinus, the governor of Palestine in 304. {Hist. Eccl. Ln Ix. n. 8.)

The next is St. Remigius, or Remi, the wellknown French bishop who baptized King Clovis,

and died in 533. His feast is October 1. Bacco is St. Bacchus, who is commemorated with St. Sergius on the 7th of October. They were martyred in Syria, under Maximian. F. C. H.

Female Foots (3,d S. iv. 453, 523.)—Allow me to add the following extract to my last communication on this subject: —

"La Czarine, qui parloit trbs-mal allemand et qui n'entendoit pas bien ce que la Ktine lui disoit, fit approcher sa folic, et s'entretint avec elle en Kusse. Cette pauvre creature ctoit une l'rinccsse Galitzin, et avoit 4t6 reMuite a faire ce mrtier-lii pour sauver sa vie. Ayant e'te" melee dans une conspiration contre le Czar, on lui avoit donne" deux fois le knouti. Je ne sais ce qu'elle disoit u la Czarine, mais cette Princesse faisoit de grands eclats de rire." — Mimoiret de la Margrave de SareUh, vol. i. p. 43, Brunswick, ed. 1845.

This Czarine was Catherine I.


Oeigin Of Names (3rd S. v. 71.) —The following extract from an old book belonging to the parish of Keel, Staffordshire, on this subject, is worth recording: —

"Sarah Legacy, who was left as such to the town by some lorry person or other on the bth of November last, baptized February 20% 1787."

W. I. S. Hortoji.

Lord Surrey's Enigma (3,d S\ v. 55.)—J. L. has, I think, deceived himself in the author. I imagined so, and carefully looked through two editions of Surrey to no purpose, and bethought me it might be Wyatt's; and there, in Bell's edition (Parker, 1854), I found it, with slight difference from J. L.'s text. I incline to the opinion of those who hold it answered best by a kiss, although, like the conceits of those days, leaving much obscure.

Mr. Bell gives a note, which I subjoin, for the sake of the poem added to it of another and much more elegant poet.

"Of the numerous riddles on the same suggestive subject, this may probably cUiim to be the earliest. It has been frequently imitated, but in no instance so closely as in the following dextrona lines by Qascoigne: — "' A lady once did ask of me This pretty thing in privity: Good Sir, quoth she, fain would I crave One thing which you yourself not have; Nor never bad yet in times past, Nor never shall while life doth last; And if you seek to find it out. You lose your labour out of doubt. Yet, if you love me as you say, Then give it me, for Bure you may.'" The last two lines of Wyatt seem to me conclusive of the meaning, carrying out the adage, never kiss and tell. The writer is bound by it, and he who guesses it Kill be. J. A. G.

Southet's Birth-place (3rd S. v. 89.) — Although Robert Southey was born at No. 11, Wine Street, Bristol, the house was subsequently divided into three separate dwellings; and I find that the actual room in which he first drew breath is situated under the roof of No. 9, now in the occupation of Mr. Trenerry, boot and shoemaker, and not in the house No. 11 as it now stands in the street. George Pryce.



The Works of William Shakespeare. Edited by William George Clark, M.A., Fellow and Tutor of Trinity College, and Public Orator; and William Aldis Wright, M.A., Librarian of Trinity College, Cambridge. Vols. II. and III. (Macmillan.)

These two new volumes of The Cambridge Shakespeare contain Much Ado about Nothing; Love's Labour's Lost; Midsummer Night's Dream; Merchant of Venice; As You Like it; Taming of the Shrew; Alts Well that Ends Well; Twelfth Night; and The Winter's Tale. When noticing the first volume of this edition, we entered so fully into the particulars of the well-considered and useful plan which the Editors had proposed to follow, and showed so clearly the great pains with which they had endeavoured to carry out such plan, that we may well, on the present occasion, content ourselves with saying that, although Mr. Glover, the Librarian of Trinity College, has been compelled, in consequence of his removal from Cambridge, to resign his share of the work, his place has been very efficiently supplied by his successor in the librariansnip, Mr. Wright, who has already given good proof of his capabilities as an editor by the care with which he recently put forth Bacon's Essays. The pains with which all the different readings adopted into the text by other editors, and all the various emendations suggested by the Commentators, have been recorded, will go far to make the Cambridge Shakespeare a satisfactory substitute for the 21 volumes of 1821, the Variorum Shakspeare, as it is called, and which has hitherto been regarded as indispensable in the library of every student of the great Dramatist. While the absence of those biting allusions to the shortcomings of their fellow-editors, Messrs. C & D, in which Messrs. A & li so frequently indulge, to the detriment of their own reputation, and the disgust of all right-minded readers, will give the Cambridge Edition favour in the eyes of those who think that the writings of Shakspeare should be edited in the noble Catholic spirit in which they were produced.

Life Portraits of William Shakspeare. A History of the various Representations of the Poet, with an Examinalion into their Authenticity. By 3. Main Friswell. Illustrated by Photographs of the most authentic Portraits, and with Views &-c. By Cundall, Downes, & Co. (Sampson Low.)

Addison was doubtless right when he spoke of a reader's desire to know whether the author whose work he is perusing was "a black or a fair man, of a mild or cholerick disposition." And if this be true of ordinary authors, how true must it be of Shakspeare! For the solution of this natural curiosity, Mr. Haiu Friswell has compiled a pleasant, chatty, and instrnctive volume, in which we have the various claims of the Stratford bust, the Kesselstadt mask, the Droeshout engraving, the Chandos, Felton, Jansen, and other paintings, to be considered as trustworthy representations of the great poet, carefully weighed, and their origin and history traced as far as it is possible to do so. While not the least amusing portion of the book is the notice of the many clever and

ingenious forgeries by which unscrupulous manufacturers of "genuine portraits" have from time to time robbed their credulous customers. As Shakspeare portraits are, we believe, still in process of manufacture, we especially commend this portion of Mr. Friswell's volume to the attention of our readers. One word more, and that is a word of praise to Mr. Cundall for the capital photographs by which the book is illustrated.

The Reference Shakspere; A Memorial Edition of Shakssperes Plays, containing 11,600 References. Compiled by John B. Marsh. (Simpkin, Marshall, & Co.) It would seem at first sight somewhat difficult to hit upon a novel treatment of Shakspeare's Works for the purposes of publication. Yet this is what Mr. Marsh has accomplished in this Memorial Edition, in which his object has been to make Shakspeare self-interpretative, and to enable the readers of his Plays to judge him for himself by means of some 11,600 references upon 872 different subjects. How much pains it has cost him may be surmised from the fact that be has devoted the leisure of four years to its accomplishment, and that upon the subject of Love alone, there are more than 700 separate references.

Shakspere's Songs and Sonnets. Illustrated by John Gilbert. (Sampson Low.)

An elegant little book, which cannot be better described than in the words of the Publishers, who express a hope " that in bringing together in an accessible form the whole of Shakspeare's Songs and the best part of his Sonnets, in enriching them with the graceful adornments of Mr. Gilbert's pencil, and in presenting them with all the advantages of choice type and paper, they are doing becoming homage to the Great Poet, and an acceptable service to his world-spread readers."

Another Blow for Life. By George Godwin, F.E.S. ■-* Few men are better able to strike a blow in the cause of life and health against disease and death than Mr. Godwin, who has long done the state good service as a champion of sanitary reform. His present work, though evidently prompted by a most earnest purpose, is very wisely written in a popular style, and there are frequent

flimpses of a quaint humour that forcibly reminds us of homas Hood. Those who would fain know something

of their poorer neighbours — how they live and why they

die — yet have no stomach for such explorations as Mr.

Godwin here describes, cannot do better than read his

Notes on Books. Ac.


Many take an interest in the hymns in use in the various offices of the Catholic Church. As far as I know, there has been no list printed of the authors of these hymns. In many cases the authorship is well established; but in others it is. doubtful: some even are attributed to several different authors. Without going into the proofs of authorship, I have thought that "N. & Q." would be a very proper Museum, where a list might be deposited of a number of hymns, with the names of the authors attached. The following list has been carefully compiled from a variety of sources, and will, I trust, be found useful for reference: —
