the building forms three sides of a large
quadrangle; the roof is surrounded with
a sort of embattlement, composed of
capital letters, in stone work, instead

given to God the Father, the Son, and
Holy Ghost on high; peace upon earth,
good-will towards men; honour and
true allegiance to our gracious king;
loving affections amongst his subjects;
health and plenty within this house.”

windows, and the deep projecting
wings of this mansion, give it much
the appearance of a college, and the re-
semblance would have been more com-
plete, had not the chapel been converted
into a kitchen. The house contains a
valuable collection of paintings of the
Old masters, and an interesting series
of family portraits : the park is finely
shaded with venerable oaks and ches-
nut trees, and the grounds are laid out
in a grand, though somewhat formal
style, but which well corresponds with
the date of the edifice.
