given by Queen Victoria; the next is a token of the love and honor felt for him by his American friends. It is commemorative of events in the fourteenth century. The upper circle is occupied by Chaucer; the royal personages are Edward III., Queen Philippa, the Black Prince, and Richard II.; the scenes represented are, the abbot and monks in their chapter-house, the House of Commons with their speaker, the Black Prince carried into Parliament, and Richard II. meeting Wat Tyler. The Rev. Dr. Phillips Brooks, one of Dean Stanley's dearest friends, was invited by the Prince of Wales to be present as a representative of America at a meeting of the executive committee to carry out the Stanley memorial. Coming back into the abbey from the chapter-house, give a glance at the long series of statesmen so many of whom were intimately concerned with the fortunes of America. There are Palmerston, who sent the troops to Canada after the Slidell and Mason affair; and Disraeli; and Canning, wh

The procession was formed at eleven o'clock, under the direction of Colonel Henry Lee, Jr., who acted as chief marshal, and it marched, to the music of Gilmore's Band, to the Unitarian Church, which was crowded to its utmost limit. Charles G. Loring presided, and the services began with the singing of Luther's Psalm, A mighty fortress is our God; Rev. Dr. Walker, Ex-President of the College, read selections from the Scriptures; prayer was made by Rev. Phillips Brooks, of Philadelphia; after which, a hymn written by Robert Lowell was sung by the congregation, to the tune of Old Hundred. This was followed by an address by Rev. Dr. Putnam, of Roxbury, of transcendent eloquence and beauty. After the services in the church, a procession moved to the large pavilion erected on the lawn in the rear of Harvard Hall, where an elegant and substantial dinner was provided. The scene in the pavilion, when all were seated, was one which will never pass from

I enjoyed the passage from New York to Gibraltar exceedingly. On Sunday morning we had a public religious service at which I read selections from the sermons of Bishop Brooks. Noticing that an Italian Catholic priest, on his way from Kansas to Italy, did not participate in the service, I rallied him pleasantly on the subject. lie said that he had had a headache and that was the reason he did not come out. I then said to him: Father, why don't you preach the Gospel? He answered: What do you mean, General Howard? I do preach the Gospel. I replied, I do not think you do, for here are 300 Italians on board, who are going from the United States to Italy.

r of compulsion but of privilege. That they should be so considered by the students, great pains were taken to make them more attractive. A fine choir of men and boys and a more congregational form of worship were features in the movement. But the great step that the university made was in calling to her service some of the strongest men in the ministry, who were led to devote a few weeks in each year to the spiritual interests of the students. Before this plan had been matured Dr. Phillips Brooks had been invited to be the chaplain of the university. He declined, fortunately; for the larger and more effective plan, by which he with others could place some of their life at the service of the college, was now developed. In this he was always a most interested and sympathetic adviser of the president, whose object was to make the Christian religion a dignified, natural, and effective force in the new life of the university. The influence which he brought to bear in favor of th

invitations to speak in public. The first of these that I remember came from a committee having in charge a meditated course of Sunday afternoon lectures on ethical subjects, to be given without other exercises, in Horticultural Hall. I was heard more than once in this course, and remember that one of my themes was Polarity, on which I had written an essay, of which I thought, perhaps, too highly. In the course of the season I was engaged in preparing for another reading. Meeting Rev. Phillips Brooks one day in my sunset outing, I said to him, Do you ever, in writing a sermon, lose sight of your subject? I have a discourse to prepare and have lost sight of mine. Oh, yes, he replied, it often happens to me. This confession encouraged me to persevere in my work, and I finished my lecture, and read it with acceptance. I suppose that I may have greatly exaggerated in my own mind the value of these writings to other people. To me, they brought much reflection and unfolding of t
