He wrote several books upon English history and antiquities, and was Deputy Keeper of her Majesty's Public Records. Serjeant Talfourd, and Lockhart; next with the Lord Mayor at Guildhall; next passed the day at Windsor Castle, the guest of refix, as Sumner; and I, of course, do the same with them.

After no little ado, Maule William Henry Maule, 1788-1858. He was remarkable at Cambridge for his mathematical powers.

Then there is Russia, just advancing her southern boundary south of the Aral Sea and to the east of the Caspian, so as to square with that on the west of the latter sea, and bring her down to Persia and nearer India. She has formally declared war against China, and her troops are doubtless now
