Among the gifts to the Association was the fine piece of statuary, "Sabrina," suggested to the artist by a beautiful passage in Milton's Comus: "Sabrina fair,/ Listen where thou art sitting/ Under the glassy, cool, translucent wave,/ In twisted braids of lilies knitting/ The loose train of thine amber-dropping hair;/ Listen for dear honor's sake,/ Goddess of the silver lake,/ Listen and save." This was placed in the centre of the room, and added greatly to the general effect and beauty of the gallery. [P. 21; entry is recorded only in the descriptive prefatory note to the catalogue.]
