CALCUTTA STATUES AND MEMORIALS (AD- DENDUM). (See 11 S. vi. 41, 104, 163, 204.) The following additions to my list may be recorded.

Clive of Plassey (1725-74). Similar to that erected in Whitehall, London (24 Aug. 1912), in the Victoria Memorial Hall Col- lection at " Belvedere," Alipore. Unveiled by Sir C. Bayley, 16 Dec., 1913. John "Tweed.

Sir William Goscombe John.

Ripon. George Frederick Samuel Robin- son, first Marquis of Ripon (1827-1909). Viceroy of Indi^, 1880-84. On the maidan to west of the Curzon statue. Bronze. A replica of that at Ripon. This belated memorial to the Viceroy of the Ilbert Bill Agitation and the Rendition of Mysore is the outcome of a public movement commenced

at the time of his leaving India, but held in abeyance until recently. Unveiled by Lord Hardinge, 4 Mar,, 1915.

I do not know if the statues of King Edward (Sir J. Brock) a.nd Lord Curzon (F. Pomeroy) referred to as in preparation at 11 S. vi. 42 have yet reached Calcutta.

A white marble bust of Dr. H. E. Busteed* author of ' Echoes of Old Calcutta,' was unveiled by Lord Carmichael, on the staircase of " Belvedere," as an addition to the Victoria Memorial Hall Collection, on 25 Feb., 1914. The Thackeray bust (US. vi. 41) has also been placed in the same collec- tion. The statue of Sir William Jones of Calcutta, in St. Paul's, London (Bacon), might have been mentioned in my notes a.t US. vi. 163. The busts of the Roman Caesars (11 S. vi. 205) came from the Government Hall of the Dutch Governor- General at Batavia in 1813 (11 S. vi. 316).


TENNYSON AND CRABBE. I wonder if it has been noticed by any one that the lines in ' In Memoriam ' (viii. ) :

A happy lover who has come

To look on her that loves him well, Who 'lights and rings the gateway bell,

And learns her gone and far from home ;

He saddens, all the magic light Dies off at once from bower and hall, And all the place is dark, and all

The chambers emptied of delight,

are an allusion to Crabbe's delightful poem ' The Lover's Journey. '

I wonder if any annotated, edition of ' In Memoriam ' has been published. I am sure a very charming volume might be made out of an edition of that kind. I should be very glad to assist in the preparation of such a book. J. WILLCOCK.


[Messrs. Macmillan published in 1905 an edition annotated by the author. There are several others. ]

TWENTIETH-CENTURY ENGLISH. The fol- lowing expressions are consistently made use of by a fairly educated resident in the East Midlands :

1. " He has a right to," in the sense of " he ought to " ; the idea intended to be conveyed being that of a duty, and not of a right or privilege.

2. " A. B. belongs to those houses," meaning "Those houses belong to A. B." a curious inversion which I do not know of elsewhere. W. B. H.
