We next enjoyed a delightful picture of old London which Edith Goadby gave us, making the acquaintance of Gabriel Bardon the locksmith, his pretty daughter Dolly and Simon the apprentice. It was all too short, but at least we left them happily seated before their jolly round of beef, their Yorkshire cake and quaintly shaped jug of ale.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>10. A further scene was depicted for us by Ethel Stevens, old Crosby Hall, Chelsea Hospital, Cheyne walk as it used to be, and Carlyle’s house, where he entertained Tennyson in the kitchen. We were introduced to John Stuart Mill and his great concern over the loss of his fiend’s manuscript of the French Revolution, and we took glimpses at William de Morgan + Sir Thomas More.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>11. Finally Charles Stansfield read us Wordsworth’s Sonnet composed on Westminster Bridge, and Henry Marriage Wallis quoted happily ten lines from William Morris."</p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;10. A further scene was depicted for us by Ethel Stevens, old Crosby Hall, Chelsea Hospital, 
Cheyne walk as it used to be, and Carlyle’s house, where he entertained Tennyson in the 
kitchen. We were introduced to John Stuart Mill and his great concern over the loss of his fiend’s 
manuscript of the French Revolution, and we took glimpses at William de Morgan + Sir Thomas 
More.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;11. Finally Charles Stansfield read us Wordsworth’s Sonnet composed on Westminster Bridge, 
and Henry Marriage Wallis quoted happily ten lines from William Morris."&lt;/p&gt;</ptr>
