"I MUST tell my hearers, that I spent above six years of my life as a boy at Eton School; and so they must excuse me for bursting forth with filial fervour
'Ye distant spires, ye antique towers,
Her Henry's holy shade.'
"How often to scattered old Etonians, amid the multiplied walks of busy life, and in all quarters of the globe, have these few simple descriptive lines, since they were first written, now above 100 years ago, recalled that well-remembered spót-that sward, green as any in all green England-those venerable elms, that appear, as they probably are, coeval with the grey towers to which their deep green lends its softening contrast-that more than classic stream, our own Father Thames, its clear waters, as yet pure of London sewage, unequalled even among mightier rivers for the beauty of its dimpling ripples; or, immediately above, those royal turrets of Windsor, looking the embodiment of British monarchy, ancient, gentle, strong: the whole scene, with all its accompaniments, tending to make even these early days of education, both in their actual experience, and in their abiding retrospect, romantic while they are careless, and conservative while they are expansive.
"I may mention, that I felt so strongly the kind of identification which this brief ode gives to the Muse of Gray with the memory of Eton, that upon a proposal being lately made, that a collection of busts of the principal worthies of Eton should be placed in the large schoolroom there, most of which were contributed by some of their descendants or connexions, I requested permission to present a bust of Gray, though certainly I could make out no plea of consanguinity, or any other but very sincere and fervent admiration."-LORD CARLISLE's Lecture on the Writings of Gray.
