Notices to Correspondents.




I HAVE asked and obtained permission from Prof. Charles G. Osgood, Secretary, of Princeton, New Jersey, to reprint (with slight changes) the list of Concordances which he issued as a part of Circular No. 7 of the Concordance Society. My changes are in the main intended to correct the list to date. It will be observed that I have not included the titles of works like Miss Lockwood's excellent Milton Lexicon'; and where there is more than one Concordance of the same poet, only the title of the better or best is recorded. It is to be hoped-for the convenience of the many readers who make inquiry for the sources of quotations-that these books will find their way into every library of importance.

With a checke to Cerberus Diabolicus and a whip for his barking against the Parliament and the Armie. And an answer to the anti-quaeries annexed to the light against the Smoak of the Temple. Written by John Saltmarsh, Minister of God's Word."

"A brief animadversion upon the mad pamphletter, composer of the 'Perfume,' &c., who out of the letters Ĉ.D.' by a rare spel of Dæmonology hath raysed Cerberus Diabolicus; yet, withall, to give the devill his due, a word of apology for him against the posted reproach put upon him by John Saltmarsh and Giles Calvert."

Starting with

Walker then issued the following disingenuous apology in Perfect Occurrences for 24 April, 1646 (last paragraph) :"We [when we is used at this period it usually means that the newsbook had more than one author, and the use of it here betokens an attempt to drag in Saltmarsh himself] have this day many things to impart, yet will not fain immoderate stories into a superfluous half-sheet to tell you that a pamphlet called 'Perfume' came out (that is a yard of poor intelligence), but Mr. Saltmarsh can cleer the author that he writ his name and title, and with that it was licensed. The Printer acknowledges his fault."

23 Dec., 1646. A Reply to a letter printed at Newcastle, under the name of an answer sent to the Ecclesiasticall Assembly at London, about matters concerning the King and the Government of the Church. With the copy of the said letter to the Assembly, in the name of John Deodate, D.D. Also a certificate from one of the scribes of the Assembly at London. London. Printed by J. C. 1646."

The preface to this is entitled "The Animadvertor's Epistle to all well affected Englishmen who are unwilling to be seduced to believe lies" ! It is signed "Yours in the Lord, Luke Harruney, Gracious Street,

this 15 of December 1646."

5. A DECLARATION BY KING CHARLES THE FIRST DATED 27 AUGUST, 1647.' It is fairly well known that this declaration is a fraud, and Thomason has marked his copy "False A grosser and more treasonable libel upon the King cannot well be imagined, and the document is so cleverly drawn that Walker must have had assistance in its composition. The title-page is as follows:

"His Majesty's Declaration to all his loving subjects concerning his gracious inclination for Peace. Briefly expressing the Royal Disposition of His Majesty toward the Honourable City of London, and for the good of his Kingdomes in general.

[Illustration of the Royal Arms.]

"By his Majesties command. Printed for one of his Majesties servants. August 27, 1647."

This tract was brought to the King's notice, and the following disclaimer was issued by his command :

"A Letter sent by Col. Whaley. Being commanded by His Majesty to declare His Majesties great dislike of a late pamphlet scandalous to His Majesty, being intituled, His Majesties Declaration to his loving subjects, touching his inclination for peace,' dated the 27 August, 1647. The which pamphlet His Majesty utterly disavows, as being published without his knowledge or consent. London. Printed by J. Coe for Henry Overton in Pope's Head Alley. 1647.”

Some satirical Royalist verses appeared. on 7 Sept., 1647, and were entitled :

"The Old Protestant's Letanie; Against all sectaries and their defendants, both Presbyterians and Independents. Composed by a lover of God and King Charles. Printed in the year of Hope. 1647."-Press-mark E 405. (5.). One verse runs :

MR. THOMAS SECCOMBE ('D.N.B.,' xlv. 210) and some other writers deride this publisher's opinions and criticisms, although they are obviously well founded, and carry valuable suggestions for reforms in social conditions generally, and the administration of the Poor Law in particular. Phillips wrote in advance of his time, but he lived to see some practical applications of his proposals. The last of his works is the most critical, A Personal Tour through the United Kingdom; describing Living Objects and Contemporaneous Interests.' This was published by his son, Horatio Phillips, at No. 3, Charing Cross, 1828. I offer one excerpt as the book is rarely referred to :

"The neighbouring country, as though for effect of light and shade, was in perfect contrast of rustic barbarity to the superabundant refinements of Althorpe. I was on my way for Welford through Guilsborough, and a sorry way it proved; gates every two hundred yards-hills and ascents and descents, as left by tides of the ocean, when
