XXXVI. ' Of the marchant that made a wager with his lord.' This, with the ex- ception of the moralization at the end, is translated from Poggio, No. 184.
XXXVII. ' Of the friere that gaue scrowes agaynst the pestilence. 'This is from No. 233 of Poggio. It is differently told in Pauli, No. 153. Oesteriey refers to Hollen, 21d ; Enr. Gran, 'Gran Specchio d' Essempi,' trad, da Astolfi, Venet., 1613, 4to, 10, 16 ; Brant, B. 8a; Montan., 740; Wolgemuth, '500 frische und ergotzliche Haupt-Pillen,' s. 1., 1669, 5, 75; 'Lyrum Larum,' 305; ' Lustigmacher, der Allzeit fertige,' s. 1., 1762, 8vo, 76.
XXXVIII. 'Of the phisitian, that vsed to write bylles ouer eue.' This story, without the application, is No. 203 of Poggio.
XXXIX. ' Of hym that wolde confesse hym by writinge.'-This is the 299th of Pauli. Oesteriey refers to Vine. Bellovac., 'Spec. Mor.,' 3, 3, 10, 8, p. 1433; Joh. Eleomos., Norimb., 1483, fol. 77a ; Brant, Gvi ; Eutrap., i. 844 ; Poggius, 174, p. 468.
XL. * Of the hermite of Padowe/ This is also from the 142nd of Poggio, and is retold in the 'Apologie pour ELerodote,' chap. xxi. (p. 23, vol. ii. of ed. cited). The editor refers to 'Chronique Burlesque,' Londres, P. du Noyer (Hollands), 1742, in 12, p. 293, 'La Curiosite bien Payee '; Merard de Saint- Just, 4 Espiegleries, Joyeusetes,' &c., 1761, t. i., 'La Curiosite Punie.' It is retold in * Pasquil s Jests,' p. 63. Hazlitt in a note says it is found in the 'Heptameron.' I think this must be a mistake ; I cannot find it in that work. There is also a similar tale in 'Pas- quil's Jests,' p. 50, called ' A Tale of a Gentle- man and his Man.' The jest also forms the latter portion of the eighth tale of ' Conde Lucanor,' by Don Juan Manuel, translated by James York, 1868, Pickering. Clouston, 'Flowers from a Persian Garden' (p. 81), gives a Persian story to the same effect, but without any references.
XLIII. 'Of the deceytfull scriuener.' This
is in Poggio, but I cannot at present find the reference.
XLIV. ' Of hym that saide he beleued his wyfe better than other, that she was chaste.' This is the forty-first of the 'Poesies' of Marie of France, ' Dou vilain qui od sa fame vit aler son dru ' (vol. ii. p. 209 of the edition by Roqueford).
XLV. 'Of hym that payde his dette with crienge bea.' It is in ' Pasquil's Jests,' p. 45. A note in the edition by Hazlitt says it is also in the 'Family Jo Miller,' 1848, 12mo, p. 139. and that it is in the celebrated farce called 'Maitre Pierre Patelin,' 1474, modernized in 1706 by Brueys under the title of * L'Avocat Patelin,' whence was taken the farce of 'The Village Lawyer.' It will also be found in the first "Nouvelle" of 'Grand Parangon des Nouvelles Nouvelles,' and in Parabosco, Day 1, Nov. 8.
XLVII. ' Of the olde woman that prayde for the welfare of the tyrant Denise.' This is similar to the fifty-nrst of Wright's Latin stories ; No. 52 has also some resemblance. It is in 4 Libro di Novelle Antiche,' &c., 1868, edited by Zarnbrini, Nov. 23, taken from Bosone da Gubbio, ' Fortunatus Siculus,' Firenze, 1832, and Milan, 1833.
XLIX. 'Of Socrates and his scoldmge wy f e .'_This is No. 471 of Pauli. Oesteriey there quotes Seneca, 'Dialog. Creatur '81 ; Joh. Sarisberiensis, * Opp. Omnia,' coll. J. R.

CECIL RHODES'S ANCESTORS. Many of these lie buried in Old St. Pancras Churchyard, the earliest recorded member being William Rhodes, a dairy farmer residing m that parish, who died in 1769. His farm stood upon the site of the present Foundling Hos- pital. Samuel Rhodes, of Islington, was Wil- liam's great-grandchild and Cecil Rhodes s great-great-grandfather. He died in October, 1822. He combined the avocations of brick- making and dairy farming. Nelson, who just before his death wrote 'The History
