LINES
WRITTEN ON THE BLANK LEAP OP A LADY's

ALDUM
From Myrtle-Leaves," a Collection of

Poems by T. W. KELLY.
Ow! since one spotless page is here,
Thou’dst fain have held to memory dear,
Let the fond leaf be sacred kept
To one for whom a pation wept !
Though Friendship hath within her tome
For my poor verse reserv'd a home,
Alas! Ideem no rhyme of mine
Meet, lady, for so sweet a shrine !
This votive page I would have given
To one who wears, the wreath of heaven,
Such as when gone, in realms divine
I wish the meed of thee and thine,
INTRODUCTORY LINES. By the late

Princess CHARLOTTE of Saxe-COBURG.
The sparkling gem from Fancy's stores,

The sterling ore from Reason's mine, Thy penetrating glance explores,

And faithful Memory makes them thine.

The above lines, from the pen of the late Princess Charlotte, were transcribed from a superbly bound and ornamented quarto of original MS. Miscellaneous Poetry, illustrated with her own coloured drawings. This book, during a temporary circumstance, was given into my care. The two verses in question appear to have been considered by the much-lamented Princess as appropriate for the introductory lines to her poems*.

* We apprehend, from the very tenor of those lines, that the author erroneously cop.'' siders the poems in questiou as original, and that they were merely collected by the Princess -Editor.

ACKERMANN's fine genuine Cumberland Black-Lend Pencils, not prepared, have been known for many years as the best Pencils for Sketching and general use. They are particularly adapted for young Students to copy from LITHOGRAPHic Studies.

T'he prepared Pencils, F, FF, B, and B B, serve for the deep Shades and finishing Touches.

R. Ackermann has received many flattering Letters from first-rate Artists, a few of which will sufficiently prove the high estimation in which his Prepared BLACK-LEAD PexCILS are held. DEAR SIR,

BRIXTON, March 1, 1824. Please to accept my sincere thanks for the set of your Prepared LeadPencils; and, having given them a fair trial, I feel much pleasure in assuring you, that I cannot do less than give them my warmest commendation. I think it is not too much to add, that I anticipate the reception of your excellent Pencils will be very general among Artists; and I am sure that, in proportion as they become known, they cannot fail of giving satisfaction.

I remain,

Dear Sir,
With respect, most truly yours,

SAMUEL PROUT.

DEAR SIR,

GEORGE-STREET, Dec. 28, 1823. The set of Pencils that you favoured me with, I have thoroughly tried, and most decidedly think that they have the advantage over those hitherto most celebrated, in the sweetness of their working, and in their consistent certainty: what I mean by this is, that they are not liable to offend you by the occurrence of scratching pieces, which I have constantly met with, and which I have been compelled to cut out several times in one Pencil. This is an essential improvement. I have no doubt, from the very pleasing manner in which your new Pencils work, that they will have a public preference, and afford you that reward which your exertions merit.

I am, Sir, most sincerely yours,

R. MARSH

DEAR SIR,

BRISTOL, Jan. 3, 1824. I have given your Pencils a trial, and am happy to say, that they have given me great satisfaction. They work with facility and mellowness, and are remarkably free from those gritty particles which are so annoying in the generality of what has been esteemed the best prepared lead.

I am, dear Sir,
Yours very truly,

GEORGE HOLMES.
