Nature cares not
HONOURS UNJUSTLY DISTRIBUTED. 0, that estates, degrees, and offices, Were not derived corruptly! and that clear honour Were purchased by the merit of the wearer! How many then should cover, that stand bare ? How many be commanded, that command ? How much low peasantry would then be glean'd From the true seed of honour ? and how much honour Pick'd from the chaff and ruin of the times, To be new varnish'd ?
Moi j'aimais tant les fleurs ! mère, je t'en convie,
Et quand il fera beau—n'est-ce pas, bonne mère ?-
Et mon noyer planté par moi, j'ai souvenance,
Je ne me plaindrais pas de mourir à l'automne,

Honorary Secretary of the Essex Archæological Society; Author of "The Manual of Sepulchral Slabs and Crosses" published under the Sanction of the Central Committee of the Archæological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, &c.
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. * We are glad to meet Mr. Cutts in the field of Ecclesiology, in which he is so intelligent and zealous a labourer. ... For those who have not seen it, we may mention that his book discusses shortly, yet with an abundance of knowledge, all the leading subjects connected with the services and adornment of a church. ... His manual might be consulted with advantage by the majority of those who have to do with the decoration of our churches and the direction of our services."--The Guardian.
“An able essay." --Spectator.
" The author writes from an evident love of, and full acquaintance with, the subject of which he treats. His readers will find the essay full of entertaining matter. The author's researches have been prosecuted in a careful and painstaking manner: his work is very reasonable in regard to price; and is decidedly the best manual and summary of information regarding 'Church Furniture and Decoration' which has as yet fallen under our notice."--Northern Standard (Edinburgh).
" It will be difficult to estimate too highly the usefulness of a book like the present, in which an Ecclesiologist of Mr. Cut!s's standing and well-known accomplishments gives us the benefit of his practical advice and sensible observations. ... The work is very prettily illustrated, and will form as agreeable and satisfactory a manual as we can imagine on the Internal Decoration of Churches."--Essex Gazette. Copies may be obtained, postage free, direct from the Publisher, or by order
of any Bookseller.
