Syme (1834), Talbot (1835), and four anonymous versions (1820, 1823, 1834, and 1836), all pubblished in London. If MR. D. KITTO wishes to ascertain whether the edition of 1838 is an entirely new translation, or a mere reprint of a previous one, he should compare two or three test-passages. The greater part of the above-stated translations are in the Bodleian Library.
TENNYSON'S CROSSING THE BAR' (8th S. ii. 446; iii. 137, 178, 315).—I have no reference, but I do not think there can be any doubt that my note on the similarity may be traced to English Lessons for English People,' by Abbott and Seeley, P. 163, published 1871, therefore three years before my little book.
W. E. MULLINS.
After writing the above, I lighted upon a note contained in Heinemann's Bibliography of Goethe's Faust in England and America' (Berlin, 1886), which makes it clear that the anonymous version of Goethe's 'Faust' printed by Arthur Taylor in 1838 does not represent a mere re- I am sorry to have caused MR.

TERRY may say that not to know Mullins argues myself unknown; but so it was, and also I was unaware that, as a previous correspondent pointed out, the late Mr. Mortimer Collins had likewise drawn attention to the similarity of the two poems. Moreover, in 1874 I am afraid I was not as careful in my reading as I should have been; and even had I desired to read deeply, I should not have had much opportunity of doing so, as I was then in a wild part of the world, to which only an occasional London paper travelled, or a dime novel, or the enthralling romances of Sylvanus Cobb. And I can assure MR. TERRY that added to this excuse must be the other, that it was only through my regard for N. & Q.,' our storehouse of literary curiosities of all kinds, that I was prompted to call attention to the resemblance of the two poems.

FEAST OF THE WINDY SHEET (8th S. iii. 288, 337). I have spoken to my friend Dr. Charnock in reference to the above, and he tells me it is a printer's error. Winding sheet, not "windy sheet," ought to have appeared in his book.

PALFREY AND POST (8th S. iii. 226).-MR. ERNST writes "Veredus, being the German Pferd (which is not derived from paraveredus)." Kluge, however, evidently thinks it is derived, and in support he gives the O.H.G. forms pferfrit and pfarifrid. One would hardly expect a Low Latin vto be represented by a High German pf, as the latter is almost invariably an equivalent of p in other languages. In Grimm's 'Von dem Fischer un Syner Fru' MR. ERNST will find the form Peerd. Would he consider this as merely a

To me, who am not nautical either, there is not the least difficulty in his simile, until it is created by "forcing the parable on all-fours." The bar is crossed in darkThe moment that ness, the Pilot being unseen. it has been crossed, the light breaks with sudden brilliance, and the face of the Pilot is clear and recognizable. The further considerations of the pilot then taking leave, &c., do not enter into the question at all-the simile is not continuous, but is limited to the simple fact indicated. How any reader could imagine the Pilot to be other than Christ is inconceivable to me.

ENGLISH SAPPHICS (8th S. iii. 289).-The Eng; fish sapphics about which MR.

I did not know that the verses in question had ever been printed, and I am pretty sure that they never appeared in any (printed) book.

By the way, I have always wondered why this curious inversion of the true rhythm has been supposed in England to represent the sapphic metre. It reminds me of the "Arma vi'erumque ca'no" of my boyhood, which used to make one so sorry for poor old Virgil, who had no English schoolmaster to teach him how to read Latin verse.
GEORGE ROBINS (8th S. ii. 209, 271).-In continuation of the replies at the second reference, it may be noted that Robins's daughter Fanny married an officer named Utterton, afterwards colonel. From this union sprang a numerous family, the eldest son being the late Dr. Utterton, Bishop Suffragan of Guildford. The bishop's mother was a remarkable woman, and inherited much of the vivacity of her father. Two good stories in which she bore a part seem worth preserving. When she and her husband were at Gibraltar, during the Peninsular War, the latter was known to be particular about his shaving water. From his friend the Spanish governor of Algeciras he received the sympathetic present of some dozens of rain-water in bottle, which the butler, thinking it to be wine, duly took charge of. Some time afterwards the colonel gave a dinnerparty; but at the last moment was called off by official duty, and a brother officer was asked to take his place at the table. In due course the

CHARLES STEward, of BRADFORD-ON-AVON (2nd S. vi. 327, 359; 8th S. iii. 154, 195, 255). — I was aware of the Stewart of Athenry pedigree to which SIGMA is good enough to refer me, and I compared it with Sir Cloudesley Shovel's will, with the following results. The will is dated 1701, and the two daughters were then under twelve. A half-sister of theirs, who had at least two children when her husband died in 1650, must have been about sixty years their senior; Sir Cloudesley Shovel, who was in active service in 1707, must have been about ninety in 1701, and his mother, who was living in 1701, must have been a really wonderfully old lady. One wonders how the pedigree got proved. Of course, the 1650 may be a printer's error; but Sir Cloudesley Shovel would surely have mentioned a grandson, and especially one called after him. VERNON.

NOTES ON BOOKS, &c.
The Diary of Samuel Pepys, M. A., F.R.S. Edited, with Additions, by Henry B. Wheatley, F.S.A. Vol. I. (Bell & Sons.) FOR the first time the scholar may congratulate himself upon the proximate possession of the complete text of the most vivacious of chroniclers and gossips. When, in 1825, the first edition of Pepys appeared, under the charge of Lord Braybrooke, it was ushered in by explanations and apologies. Unaware, apparently, that the paragraphs of personal gossip constituted a chief charm, Lord Braybrooke found it "absolutely necessary to curtail the MS. materially, and in many instances to condense the matter." Only in consideration how little was known from trustworthy sources concerning the Restoration stage did he venture to print the all-important account Pepys supplies of the doings at the theatres, and he expresses his contrition for having occupied the time of grave men with matters so frivolous. So immediate and sensible was the gain from the sources thus thrown open, that the work obtained a warm welcome. Curiosity as to the unprinted portions was always rife. Not for half a century was any attempt made to enlarge the portion accessible to the public. The Rev. Mynors Bright issued, some eighteen years ago, what was expected to prove a complete edition. He, however, omitted the account of the daily work at the office, which he says would have proved tedious to the reader. This omitted portion constitutes, says Mr. Wheatley, "roughly speaking, about one-fifth of the whole diary." Mr. Bright, none the less, transcribed the whole, and, by bequeathing his MS. to Magdalen College, facilitated the efforts of the latest and most responsible editor. The first volume now appears, containing every word of the MS. except a few passages of such indescribable gross ness that they cannot possibly be printed. This is not due, Mr. Wheatley assures us, to any squeamishness on his part. He marks the places whereat the omissions occur, and asks from the public what will readily be
The present edition, when complete, must supersede all others. Pepys is, of course, a delightful old gossip, and his conversations and records afford us a marvellous insight into his personality. They have historical and antiquarian value also, and the possession of them in their integrity is a matter of extreme importance. It is not easy to conceive them in guise more attractive to the bibliophile. In Mr. Wheatley we have, moreover, an editor thoroughly earnest, accurate and painstaking, and also thoroughly master of his subject. Among the books of the new season few are likely to have claims on attention stronger than this, the following volumes of which we await with patience.
East Barnet. By Frederick Charles Cass. Part II. (Nichols & Sons.)
WE noticed the first part of this valuable work on its appearance some time ago. The part before us bears out the high character of its predecessor. It is not an unknown thing for authors of topographical books to tire as they go on, and thus make the concluding pages of their undertakings far inferior in interest to the earlier parts. We find nothing of this sort in the part before us. The last pages seem to have had quite as much conscientious care bestowed upon them as the first. The description of the parish church of St. Mary the Virgin seems to us excellently done. The old wills, some of which are in Latin, which we encounter as we go along, add much interest to the volume. They are, perhaps, none of them of primary importance, but there is not one of them which does not throw a ray or two of light on by-past times. Johanna Dodeman, widow, of East Barnet, whose will is dated September 29, 1541, was not improbably a Protestant, or if that be saying too much, having regard to the date, at least one who inclined to the new opinions, for there is no mention of saints or angels, but of" Allmyghtye God my maker & Redemer " only.
The extracts from the parish registers are of no small interest. They make us long for the whole of these precious documents to be preserved by the printing press. On Christmas Day, 1781, a negro servant called Pamela was baptized by the name of Mary. She had probably been a West Indian slave. On November 16, 1805, an infant son of Archibald and Elizabeth Macklean was baptized Nelson, because, as the register states, he was "born on Monday the 21st Oct, on which day a complete victory was obtained over the combined fleets of France and Spain, when Lord Nelson, the Commander to remark that the work is furnished with a very good in Chief, was unfortunately killed." We must not fail
THE Fortnightly is principally political, or, at least, controversial. Among the articles that come within our

Mr. Sydney's Memories of Old St. Paul's' attract attention to the Gentleman's, in which Mr. Rayleigh Vicars describes The Rise and Fall of Millbank Prison.'

Judd writes, in Belgravia, upon Witches and Witchcraft.-The English Illustrated reproduces Hit,' by Sir F. Leighton, P.R.A., and has many well-illustrated papers. A Song of the English,' by Mr. Rudyard Kipling, is more noteworthy for patriotism of sentiment than melody of versification. Mr. Harry Quilter, in his The Royal Academy Exhibition,' seems to grudge the laurels of Mr. Harry Furniss.-The Cornhill has good papers on The Scillies and the Scillonians'; Last Wills and Testaments,' taken partly from Dr. Sharpe's admirable Calendar of Wills in the Court of Hustings'; and Needlecraft.'-The contents of the Idler remain light and effervescent.

A reproduction of a map of 1720 of London, Westminster, and Southwark, is also given. The Storehouse ends at" Hedge," and has an illustration of guns.
ken are the second part of 'Are Acquired Characters Inherited?' by Alfred Russell Wallace; Rome Revisited,' by Frederic Harrison; 'Synthetic Chemistry,' by Prof. Thorpe; and 'Is the Universe Infinite?' by Sir Robert Ball, F.R.S. Sufficiently startling to the followers of Euclid are some of Sir Robert's assertions and arguments. Mr. Harrison's paper is brilliant. He holds that Rome, though some of the poetry may have departed, gains in interest to the antiquary, and states that "the thousand years of Paris and of London are but a span in the countless years of the Eternal City." The West Indies in 1892,' by Lord Brassey, will repay study. A considerable space in the Nineteenth Century is devoted to literary and artistic subjects. First in the number appears Mr. Swinburne's song, The Union.' In his 'St. William of Norwich' the Rev. Dr. Jessopp deals with a story the particulars of which have occupied much attention in N. & Q.,' and gives a striking and most suggestive picture of the atrocities to which the Jews were subject. Mrs. McClure supplies curious information as to the 'Agram Mummy,' and Prof. Max Müller deals trenchantly with Esoteric Buddhism. In the fifth part of his Aspects of Tennyson,' Mr. Theodore Watts deals convincingly with the late Laureate "as a Nature poet." The Hon. John W. Fortescue has a good paper On the Influence of Climate upon Race,' in which he deals with the results of English occupation of Australia and New Zealand. A Walk in Alexandria,' by Mr. Dowling, is very readable. Mr. J. A. Fuller Maitland writes on "Falstaff" and the New Italian Opera.'-Art Reproduction,' by the late John Addington Symonds, with which the New Review opens, is Occupied largely with the designs of the old Italian masters by Timothy Cole, with Mr. Stillman's notes. These we take to be the same to which, on their first appearance in the Century, we have drawn attention. The Bishop of Tasmania says, in 'Melanesia and the Labour Traffic,' some consoling things. The Hon. Roden Noel, under the head 'The Cambridge " Apostles,"" is very free in his dealings with Lord Tennyson and Lord Houghton. Lady Lindsay gives an article on 'KeyFlowers,' which will be read with pleasure, not only by all interested, but by folk-lorists and students of popular superstitions. Mr. H. D. Traill deals with current literature. An excellent number of the Century opens naturally with 'At the Fair,' Chicago, of which many good plates are given. Recollections of Lord TennyBon,' by John Addington Symonds, gives a capital picture of the poet in the hours when he, in a sense, unbent. A fresh and delightfully illustrated chapter is added to 'An Embassy to Provence.' It describes the valley of the Sorgue. Personal Impressions of Nicaragua' is excellent. The Queen and the Duchess' has great interest for English readers. Further Extracts from the Autobiography of Salvini' are given.-Scribner's, hich arrives late, has a pleasing coloured picture of 'A Daughter of Japan,' An Unpublished Autograph M.

THE New Caxton Head Catalogue of the Tregaskises is a work of art, reproducing many curious title-pages, illustrations, bindings, &c. Some of the plates have great interest.
