Correspondence. To the Editor of the LONDON KELT. THE NEW POET LAUREATE. I must really apologize to your correspon- dent G. for not replying before this to his strictures on my article on the above subject, but I have been hoping to go to the British Museum Library to read some of Mr. Austin's works, especially the one on Savonarola, which I might have utilized in my lecture had I known of its existence. Not having done this I feel it rather an awkward matter to reply. G.'s remarks I must say were a surprise, for I had no idea that Austin was such a prolific poet. With regard to this ignorance I am afraid I must put myself in the same category as Mr. Austin himself, for he said that the subject of Alfred the Great had never been treated before as a poem—whereas Martin Tupper author of Proverbial Phil- osophy had written one. Cottle had produced a poem consisting of twenty-four books, which poem ran to a fourth edition, ios. 6d. a copy. Thomson, author of The Seasons," had written a masque. Blackmore, a poem of twelve cantos or books. Fitchett, a poem of 44,324 lines, and F. T. Palgrave, Professor of Poetry at Ox- ford also has a poem on it. I must confess I did follow in the wake of the journals, but there were such a lot of them taking the same view that I acted on the strength of the old saying, What everybody says must be true." I have however seen the article in the Standard, which G. quotes, and read the poem Who would not die for England ? and also Stead's article on The Book of the Month in the Review of Reviews for February, and had I time could make quotations from it, superior to those G. has given Yet, I shall always feel a profound gratitude to Sir Lewis Morris for breathing into the old Greek myth- ology the spirit of our own time. I may have an opportunity of proving this either in the LON- DON KELT or elsewhere if I am permitted space for some remarks on the subject. Yours faithfully, MYNORYDD.
THE LATE R. S. HUGHES' GRAVE WITHOUT A TOMBSTONE. To the Editor of the LONDON KELT. SIR,-I have just received a letter from a friend in North Wales, to the effect that poor R. S. Hughes' grave is without a tombstone only a small slate with the name R. S. Hughes on it, to denote the spot where he sleeps his last sleep. Surely this is not as it should be, and it would be a disgrace to us as a musical nation to let the matter rest without making an effort to get a worthy monument erected over the grave, and in memory of one of Cambria's greatest musical genuises. So musical friends, let us be up and doing. I understand that a Committee has been formed at Bethesda, and they would be glad of the co-operation of the LONDON KFLT in opening a public Subscription List, as I have no doubt there are many Lon- don friends of the departed that would be only too glad to send in their subscriptions. I remain, Yours truly, HERBERT EMLYN. 20, Lynton Rd., Brondesbury, N.W. 3rd March, 1896. The following Subs. are already to hand.
