photographs of the magnificent monument. They gave me more pleasure than I can say--a pleasure almost as great, I think, as the honour the work does to its author. Please thank Duveneek very heartily for the photographs and tell him how noble and beautiful, and simple serene and unique I think his inspiration has been. Forever (practically) will that exquisite image lie there to enshrine it. One sees, in its place, and its ambiente, what a meaning and eloquence the whole thing has--and one is touched to tears by this particular example which comes home to one so--of the jolly great truth that it is art alone that triumphs over fate. 27
