Text Appearing Before Image:
that would not i4 THROUGH THE MAGIC DOOR go. If he rambled into any fashionablecoffee-house, he became a mark for theinsolent derision of fops, and the gravewaggery of Templars. Enraged and morti-fied, he soon returned to his mansion, andthere, in the homage of his tenants and theconversation of his boon companions, foundconsolation for the vexations and humiliationswhich he had undergone. There he wasonce more a great man, and saw nothingabove himself except when at the assizes hetook his seat on the bench near the Judge, orwhen at the muster of the militia he salutedthe Lord Lieutenant. On the whole, I should put this detachedchapter of description at the very head of hisEssays, though it happens to occur in anothervolume. The History as a whole does not, asit seems to me, reach the same level as theshorter articles. One cannot but feel that itis a brilliant piece of special pleading from afervid Whig, and that there must be more tobe said for the other side than is there set forth.
Text Appearing After Image:
THOMAS BABIXGTON, BARON MACALI.AV. From the /ninthly by Sir Francis Grant, /./…!. THROUGH THE MAGIC DOOR 15 Some of the Essays are tinged also, no doubt,by his own political and religious limitations.The best are those which get right awayinto the broad fields of literature and philo-sophy. Johnson, Walpole, Madame DArblay,Addison, and the two great Indian ones, Cliveand Warren Hastings, are my own favourites.Frederick the Great, too, must surely standin the first rank. Only one would I wish toeliminate. It is the diabolically clever criti-cism upon Montgomery. One would havewished to think that Macaulays heart wastoo kind, and his soul too gentle, to pen sobitter an attack. Bad work will sink of itsown weight. It is not necessary to sousethe author as well. One would think morehighly of the man if he had not done thatsavage bit of work. I dont know why talking of Macaulayalways makes me think of Scott, whose books,in a faded, olive-backed line, have a shelf,you see, of their own. P

The New Tenants

Blue Birds moving in
This bird house was on the tree right behind this pole that you can see in this picture but the tree broke in half :o(
It was on the ground in a previous picture this spring with a ladybug on it. Click here to see that picture: Bird House from Cedar
I had this pole installed last fall and just the other day I asked my hubby to please re-install the bird house. I thought maybe the birds wouldn’t use it this year but I still wanted to get it back up.
He barely left the area after re-installing it and the birds were fighting over who gets the house!!
