Exhibited in Great Exhibition at Paris, 1855. From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Act 5th, Scene 3d. [P. 5.] "Capulet. 'O brother Montague, give me thy hand./ This is my daughter's jointure, for no more/can I demand./ Montague. But I can give thee more./ For I will raise her statue in pure gold./ That, while Verona by that name is known,/ there shall be no figure at that rate be set,/ as that of true and faithful Juliet./ Capulet. As rich shall Romeo by his lady lie;/ poor sacrafices of our enmity./ Prince. A glooming peace this morningwith it brings;/ the sun for sorrow will not show his head./ Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;/ some shall be pardon'd, and some punished./ For never was a story of more woe,/ than this of Juliet and Romeo." [P. 6.]
