Associate of the Royal Academy. "My due from thee is this imperial crown,/ Which, as immediate from thy place and blook,/ Derives itself to me. Lo! Here it sits,/ (Putting it on his head) Which Heaven shall guard; and, put the world's whole strength/ Into one giant arm, it shall not force/ This lineal honour from me." Shakspeare's "Henry IV," Part II, Act IV, Scene 4. This was one of the Prize Pictures in the Government Exhibition at Westminister Hall. [P. 9.]
