AUTHOR OP ** THE STONES OF VENICE," " THE SEVEN LAMPS OF ARCHITECTURE,"

ETC. ETC.

. ** Accuse me not

Of arrogance,

If, baring waiked with Nature,

And offered, far as fraiity wouid aiiow,

My heart a daiiy sacrifice to Truth,

I now afHrm of Nature and of Truth,

Whom I have nerved, that their Divinity

ifevnits, offended at the ways of men,

Phiiosophers, who, though the human soui

iie of a thousand facuities composed,

And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prizj

This soui, and the transcendent universe,

No more than as a mirror that reflects

To proud Seii-iove her own inteiiigence."

Wordsworth.
