" Ah ! could thy grave at home, at C irthage, be ! " Care not for that, and lay me where I fall ! Everywhere heard will be the judgment-call. But at God's altar, oh ! remember me.

Matthew Arnold, * Monica's Last Prayer.'

[G. W. E. R. also refers to Matthew Arnold.]


xi. 490 ; xii. 13, 93). In a French letter I received lately occurs : " J'ai eu beau questionner tout le monde et son pere," which was new to me. Is it a standard phrase in French, or imported from England and slightly changed ? G. KRUEGER.


In my reply at p. 93 the words " for everybody " should follow " equivalent."


" AND HE WAS A SAMARITAN " : DR. E. E. HALE (10 S. xii. 46). The verses inserted under the above heading have been set to music and published as a song, with the title of 'Hullo,' by Keith, Prowse & Co. This publication is dedicated to W. Prowse Jones, Esq., and ascribes the words to S. W. Foss, and the music to Herbert E. Crimp. This appears to decide the question of authorship, and disposes of the con- jecture that Dr. Hale was the writer.

TIONS AND ADDITIONS (10 S. xii. 64). Vol. viii. p. 111. John Nevill, father of Ralph, 2nd Earl of Westmoreland, died, not (as stated by Dugdale on the authority of Brooke) in 1423, but some time before 11 June, 1420. It appears from Inquisitions post Mortem (Chancery), 1 Henry VI. No. 45, m. 17, that his wife Elizabeth executed a deed dated 9 September, 8 Henry V. (A.D. 1420), in which she describes herself as his widow. There is also a warrant for the Privy Seal dated 12 June, anno 8, which can be assigned to the eighth year of Henry V., in whicn he is described as John Nevill " que Dieu perdone." The warrant relates to the transfer of the stores of Carlisle Castle to Richard Nevill, who succeeded his half- brother as Warden of the West Marches by virtue of letters patent of the day previous to the date of the warrant (' Rotuli Scotiae,' vol. ii. p. 226). This should be conclusive as against the unsupported testimony of Brooke. C. J.

HEWS OR HUSE FAMILY (10 S. xii. 128). [n a parchment of 40 Elizabeth in my possession, relating to a view of frank pledge, I find my forbear Thomas Hughes, yeoman, of Hodson in the parish of Chisel- don, Wilts, written as " Huse." Tyrwhitt was the first critic who suggested that the Mr. W. H. of Shakespeare's Sonnets might be Mr. William Hughes. He based his conjecture on line 7 of Sonnet XX. :

A man in hew all Hews in his controwling. On the other hand, ' D.N.B.' (xxviii. 332) ives Sir William Hussey or Huse (d. 1495), /hief Justice. He was father of John, Lord Hussey of Sleaford, executed in 1537 for complicity in the Lincolnshire rising. The Oxford Register, 1571-1622, gives the variations of the name Hughes as Heughes, Hewes, Hewgh, Hewis, Hewse, Hues, Hues, Huges, Hugh, Hughis, Hughs, Huis, Hwes, and Hwis. A. R. BAYLEY.

PAUL BRADDON (10 S. viii. 489 ; x. 417 ; xii. 91, 139). According to the catalogue of an exhibition held in Hull in April, 1899, one of the exhibits was a picture of the local Market-Place " Painted by Paul Braddon about 1840." L. L. K.

"MOON-DOG," WEATHER SIGN (10 S. xii* 130). At 4 S. viii. 505 MR. EDWARD HAILSTONE recorded of Whitby :

" When a halo with watery clouds gathers round the moon, the seamen say there will be a change of weather, for the moon dogs are about."

I see that the ' E.D.D.' has this information from The Gentleman's Magazine (August, 1880), p. 185. ST. SWITHIN.

PARODIES OF KIPLING AND THE POET LAUREATE (10 S. xii. 128). " Every little helps." Mr. Alfred Austin's ' A Voice from the West,' which appeared in The Standard of 29 April, 1898, was travestied, under the title of ' That Voice from the West,' by " Testudo " in The World, on (to the best of my belief) 6 May of the same year.


'THE YAHOO' (10 S. xii. 130). An edition of this was published in London in 1842 by M. Ryall, 8, Holy well Street. In a copy in the Manchester Free Library there is pasted a cutting from a catalogue of G. Findley, a Leicester bookseller, dated 1878, with the following note :

"Probably the most outrageous piece of blas- phemy ever printed. This copy has a leaf of writing paper inserted, on which is written, ' William Watts, setat. 97, the author.' "
