(Obtained one of the Prizes in the government Competition.) "'Oh, father%--if you let me call you so--/ I never came a begging for myself,/ Or William, or this child; but now I come/ For Dora: take her back, she loves you well. . . . Let me have my boy, for you/ Will make him hard, and he will learn to slight/ His father's memory. Take Dora back,/ And let all this be as it was before.'"/ So Mary said, and Dora hid her face by Mary." TENNYSON. [P. 11; ellipses appear in the catalogue.]
