word. One of my pleasantest London dinners was at the ever hospitable house of the late Sir Frederick Pollock; the other persons present being Lady Pollock, with her eldest son, the present wearer of the title, and two most agreeable men,--Mr. Venable, for many years the editor of the annual summary of events in the London times, and Mr. Newton, of the British Museum. The latter was an encyclopaedia of art and antiquities, and Mr. Venable of all the social gossip of a century; it was like Mr. Venable of all the social gossip of a century; it was like talking with Horace Walpole. Of one subject alone I knew more than they did, namely, Gilbert Stuart's pictures, one of which, called The Skater, had just been unearthed in London, and was much admired. Why don't they inquire about the artist? said Sir Frederick Pollock. He might have done something else. They would hardly believe that his pictures were well known in America, and that his daughter was still a conspicuous person in society. Much of the talk fell upon lawyers and clergymen.
