" Wangle " here evidently means to pull out, to draw out, to take out. The word seems to be a favourite at present judging from the various significations ^attached to it. R. W. B.


Beware the fury of a patient man as the 1005th line of Part I. of Dryden'i

  • Absalom and Achitophel.'


Beware the fury of a patient man is from David's speech near the end (1. 1005) of Dryden's ' Absalom and Achitophel. The thought is found in Publilius Syrus :

Furor fit Isesa ssepius patientia.

Both these lines are given by King, ' Classical

and Foreign Quotations,' as parallels to the

proverb " Craignez la col ere de la colombe."


THE PRONUNCIATION OF " CHOPIN " til S. xi. 168). This name, though of course originally French, is pronounced in a some- what Polonized way (an analogy is to be found in the English pronunciation of some French names). Ch is, in this case, pro nounced like the Polish sz or the English sh ; but the in is similar to the Polish en, i.e., is pronounced as the en in ten. The accent falls on the o. Thus the name sounds Shawpenn. It is often spelt Szopen.

HERALDRY WITHOUT TINCTURES (11 S. xi. 171). I do not think any such clue to tinctures is to be discovered. Gener- ally speaking, all charges are raised, and in the case of ordinaries and partitions the upper or the dexter part is raised. But I have not infrequently found the same coat '(say a coat quarterly indented) carved once "with the upper right and lower left quarter raised, and again in the opposite manner, in the same town and of approximately the same period. D. L. GALBREATH.

LION WITH ROSE (11 S. xi. 170). Is there any authority to be quoted for the augmentation granted " on the field of battle " to Rhys Faw ? It is certainly not the only augmentation to a crest known, but it would be well to ascertain whether the story reposes on anything better than tradition. D. L. GALBREATH.

AUTHOR OF HYMNS WANTED (11 S. xi. 170). In ' Freemasonry in Lincolnshire,' by Wm. Dixon (p. 208), the two hymns in question are attributed to W. Clegg of Boston (Lines). J. T. T.

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLARS : ALLEGED APPROPRIATION (11 S. xi. 171). Cardinal Gasquet in ' English Monastic Life,' at p. 233, says of the Templars :

" Their Order was suppressed by Pope Cle- ment V. in 1309 ; an act which was confirmed

in the Council of Vienne in 1312 On the final

suppression of their Order, their lands and houses, to the number of eighteen, were handed over to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem."

Is it not probable that Penmachno thus passed from the Templars to the Hos- pitallers ? JOHN B. WAINEWRIGHT.

REVERSED ENGRAVINGS (11 S. ix. 189, 253, 298). At the second reference MRS. LAVINGTON remarks that " reversed engravings of subject pictures must be rather uncommon, owing to the resulting left-handedness in action." In ' Les Monu- mens de la Monarchie Frangoise,' par Bernard de Montfaucon, 1729-33, iii. 72, the author, writing of the double-page folio engraving representing the combat between the dog and the Chevalier Macaire (story of the ' Dog of Montargis ' ), says that it is the fault of the ancient engraver that in the ancient print Macaire holds his cudgel in his left hand and his buckler in his right, adding that this has been corrected in the new engraving, i.e., in that in * Les Monumens,' " new " nearly 200 years ago. ROBERT PIERPOINT.

PUNCTUATION : ITS IMPORTANCE (US. xi. 49, 131, 177). Referring to MR. MARCHANT'S reply (ante, p. 132), I would remind him that Lord Raglan's order to Lucan for the Light Cavalry to charge at Balaclava was delivered to Lord Cardigan verbally by Capt. Nolan. HAROLD MALET, Col.

PICTURES AND PURITANS (11 S. xi. 151, 195). The pictures mentioned were probably not all paintings on canvas, but representa- tions in stained glass or in some other medium which were deemed objectionable by William Dowsing and his assistant icono- clasts. In his Journal, which I possess, printed at the end of Wells's ' Rich Man's Duty ' (published by John Henry Parker, Oxford, in 1840), one reads that at All- lallows, Sudbury, they "brake about twenty superstitious pictures"; at Stoke-Nayland, "an hundred " ; at Ufford, thirty, and '" gave direction to take down thirty-seven more " ;
