aUTHOR OP "THE STONES OF VENICE," "THE sEVEN LaMrS OF aRCHITECTURE,'
** Accuse me not
If, having walked with Nature,
And offered, far as frailty would allow,
My heart a daily sacrifice to Truth,
I now affirm of Nature and of Truth,
Whom I have served, that their Divinity
Revolta, offended at the ways of men,
Philosophers, who, though the human soul
Be of a thousand faculties composed,
And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prue
This soul, and the transcendent universe,
No more than as a mirror that reflects
To proud Self-love her own intelligence."
SMITH, ELDER AND CO., 65, CORNHILL.
