"Mr. Thoms, the able Editor of that successful little farrago of learning, oddities, absurdities, and shrewdnesses. Notes and Queries, perhaps the one weekly newspaper which will be consulted three hundred years hence, has been trying very hard to get at the truth of the Hannah Lightfoot story. It is nearly impossible to prove a negative, and quite impossible to prove a negative about the secret history of Courts; but Mr. Thoms has certainly succeeded in raising a violent presumption that the story is a delusion, probably based on some intrigue carried on by one of the Royal Family."
Spectator, June 22.

"Mr. Secretan is a pains-taking writer of practical theology. Called to minister to an intelligent middle-class London congregation, he has to avoid the temptation to appear abstrusely intellectual,-a great error with many London preachers, and at the same time to rise above the strictly plain sermon required by an unlettered flock in the country. He has hit the mean with complete success, and produced a volume which will be readily bought by those who are in search of sermons for family reading. Out of twenty-one discourses it is almost impossible to give an extract which would show the quality of the rest, but while we commend them as a whole, we desire to mention with especial respect one on the Two Records of Creation,' in which the vexata quæstio Geology and esis' stated with great perspicuity and faithfulness: another on Home Religion, in which the duty of the Christian to labour for the salvation of his relatives and friends is strongly enforced, and one on the Latin Service in the Romish Church,' which though an argumentative sermon on a point of controversy, is perfectly free from a controversial spirit, and treats the subject with great fairness and ability."-Literary Churchman.
"This volume bears evidence of no small ability to recommend it to our readers. It is characterised by a liberality and breadth of thought which might be copied with advantage by many of the author's brethren, while the language is nervous, racy Saxon. In Mr. Secretan's sermons there are genuine touches of feeling and pathos which are impressive and affecting; - notably in those on the Woman taken in Adultery, and on Youth and Age. On the whole, in the light of a contribution to sterling English literature, Mr. Secretan's sermons are worthy of our commendation."— Globe.
"Mr. Secretan is no undistinguished man: he attained a considerable position at Oxford, and he is well known in Westminster-where he has worked for many years no less as an indefatigable and self-denying clergyman than as an effective preacher. These sermons are extremely plain simple and pre-eminently practical intelligible to the poorest, while there runs through them a poetical spirit and many touches of the highest pathos which must attract intellectual minds."- Weekly Mail.

The first extract which I shall quote is on p. 13, where-speaking of the duty of parents to do the utmost for their children, and quoting the words of the psalmist, "When my father and mother forsook me, thou, O Lord, tookest me up"— he says:
"Which freely I confesse, I may say myselfe, being left young to the wide world to seek my fortune, and acknowledge the providence of Almighty God to have attended me both at home and abroad in other countries, for which I had rather bee silently thankfull than to proclaime the particularities (which to some may seeme to be fabulous and incredible); and for any thing I know, I and mine must say yet (though in a farre different condition) with that Noble and Great Earle of Ireland, God's Providence is our inheritance."
"I thinke the place that gave me first my birth,
"But say, thou being a generall Scholler, a Traveller, an excellent Artist in one kind or other, and desirest (not out of a vaine glory Digito monstrari et dicier, Hic est) but of a good minde of profitting, and doing good to others, to make the World partaker of thy Knowledge if thou bee'st a Scholler; or thy Observations, being a Traveller; or thy Experience or Invention, being an Artist; having spent many yeeres, much money, and a great part of thy life, hoping by thy labours and honest deserving to get a respect in the world, or by thy Dedication the favour and support of some great personage for thy preferment, or a good round summe of a Stationer for thy Coppy, and it must be a choice and rare one too; (which hee for his own gaine will look to) it will hardly by a tenth part countervaile thy labour and charge. For the respect of the world is nothing; nay, thou shalt finde it altogether ingrate, and thy Reader readier to requite thee with a jeere or a scorne, than a good word to give thee thy due; and perhaps out of envy, because thou knowest more and art learneder than hee: and though thou hast a generall applause, thou shalt bee but a nine daies wonder."
He then glances at several "authors and poets
of late times," and considers how they thrived by at that time, since I thought it to bee the best that I had their "workes and dedications." seene, which perhaps another would have disliked."
"The famous Spenser [he says] did never get any preferment in his life, save toward his latter end hee became a Clerk of the Councell in Ireland; and dying in England, hee dyed but poore. When he lay sick, the Noble, and patterne of true Honour, Robert Earl of Essex, sent him twenty pound, either to relieve or bury him. Josuah Silvester, admired for his translation of Bartas, dyed at Middleborough, a Factor for our English Merchants, having had very little or no reward at all, either for his paines or Dedication: and honest Mr. Michael Drayton had about some five pound lying by him at his death, which was Satis viatici ad cælum, as William Warham, Bishop of Canterbury, answered his Steward (when lying upon his death-bed, he had asked him how much money hee had in the house, hee told his Grace Thirty pounds). I have (I confesse) published things of mine owne heretofore, but I never gained one halfe-penny by any Dedication that ever I made, save splendida promissa (and as Plutarch saith) Byssina verba: Neither cared I much; for what I did, was to please my selfe onely. So that I would wish no friend of mine in these daies to make further use of English Poesie than in Epitaphs, Emblemes or Encomiasticks for Friends."
I shall conclude this notice of a most interesting little volume-although I have by no means ex
He next speaks of Latin poetry being little hausted its information-by extracting an anecvalued in England, adding: dote (p. 103) concerning Peacham's younger days, which affords a glimpse of the celebrated comedian Dick Tarlton. I do not recollect to have seen it quoted before: :i
"I confesse I have spent too many good houres in this folly and fruitless exercise, having beene ever naturally addicted to those Arts and Sciences which consist of proportion and number, as Painting, Musicke, and Poetry, and the Mathematical Sciences; but now having shaken hands with those vanities (being exercised in another Calling) I bid them (though unwillingly, and as friends doe at parting with some reluctancy) Adieu, and am with Horace his old Fencer forced to say- Veianius armis Herculis ad postem fixis latet abditus agro."
"I remember [he says] when I was a schoolboy in Lowdon, Tarlton acted a third son's part, such a one as I now speake of: His father being a very rich man, and lying upon his death-bed, called his three sonnes about him, who with teares, and on their knees craved his blessing, and to the eldest sonne, said hee, you are mine heire, and my land must descend upon you, and I pray God blesse
From his chapter "Of Liberty," we learn that you with it. The eldest sonne replyed, Father, I trust in Peacham was unmarried. He says:God you shall yet live to enjoy it your selfe. To the second sonne (said he), you are a scholler, and what prefession soever you take upon you, out of my land I allow
threescore pounds a yeare towards your maintenance, and three hundred pounds to buy you bookes; as his brother, he weeping answer'd, I trust Father you shal live to enjoy your money your selfe, I desire it not, &c. To the third, which was Tarlton (who came like a rogue in a foule shirt without a band, and in a blew coat with one sleeve, his stockings out at the heeles, and his head full of straw and feathers), as for you, Sirrah, quoth he, you know how often I have fetched you out of Moorgate and Bridewell, you have beene an ungracious villaine, I have nothing to bequeath to you but the gallowes and a rope. Tarlton weeping, and sobbing upon his knees (as his brothers) said, O Father, I doe not desire it, I trust in God you shall live to enjoy it your selfe. There are many such sons of honest and carefull parents in England at this day."
EDWARD F. RIMBAULT.
Concerning "freedome and independance," the author boldly exclaims:
He afterwards alludes to his having visited Antwerp (p. 64); and a little further on in the volume (p. 70), to his having been present at the taking of the town of "Rees in Cleveland," between "Wesel and Embrick." Again, in the chapter "Of Travaile," he speaks of having been through " Westphalia," the "Netherlands," the "Cities of Italy," &c. He says, "I remained a good time at Leiden in Holland," and dwells with delight on what he saw on the Continent. Speaking of "friendship" (p. 82), Peacham says:
"There is also the want of halfe a mans Liberty in Marriage; for he is not absolutely himselfe, though many beelieve when they are going to Church upon their Wed-you ding-day, they are going into the Land of Liberty: But Solomon telleth them, The foole laugheth when he is going to the stocks. For my part, I am not married; if I were, should finde my wings clipt, and the collar too streight for my neck."
For mine owne part I affect freedome so much, and I have found such happinesse therein, that I had rather dine even at a three peny Ordinary, where I may be free and merry, then to bee a dumbe tenant for two houres at a Lords table, preferring health and liberty, bona corporis, before those of Fortune, and all the wealth the greatest Usurer hath in the world, and will ever say, O bona libertas, pretio pretiosior omni.”
"I confesse my selfe to have found more friendship at a strangers hand, whom I never in my life saw before, yea, and in forraine parts beyond the seas, than among the most of my neerest kindred and old acquaintance here in England, who have professed much towards mee in empty promises."
A passage on p. 53, where speaking of "Opinion," introduces Peacham as a traveller:
"One day when I [was] walking in Breda in Brabant not farre from the Market place, I passed by a Gentleman or Merchant's house, over whose great gates was written in letters of gold upon a blew ground, Totus mundus regitur opinione. I stood still, and pondering upon it, I found witty and weighty [sic], to concerne the whole world, and every one in particular, and my selfe especially
