The five drawings-pen drawings in sepia ink-are on thick board. Each is in the style of the familiar lithographed music front, and takes as its subject a verse from one of the ballads. The second drawing was lithographed by T. Bailey, and printed by T. Thomas & Sons, Chester. The lithograph, which was given the title of Myfanwy Morgan of Conwy does not do justice to the original. No date appears on the drawings, nor on the volume, but the drawings and the title- page at least must have been done after Miss Parker's marriage in 1832. The volume was bound by Painter, Bookseller, Wrexham H. N. JERMAN. MARY CARRYL AND < THE LADIES OF LLANGOLLEN The National Library has recently acquired a portrait of Mary Carryl, who was for many years the servant of those two well-known eccentrics, the Ladies of Llangollen V A water-colour, measuring 1 if ins. by 75 ins., it is signed with a monogram of V.R., but what artist these initials stand for has not been ascertained. Also on the painting, written faintly in pencil, are the words Llangollen Nov. 1806' and some others which have been rendered indecipherable by the clipping of the print. On the front of the mount, in pencil, is Mrs. Mary Carol for many years Servant to the Ladies of Llangollen On the back, in ink, is: Llangollen Novr. 8,1806. Mrs. Mary; Cats-Chaplain and Betty; Dog-Ringer and the initials H.E.W.W.' which, without much doubt, must stand for Henrietta Elizabeth Williams Wynn.2 The drawing itself has also been attributed to her, in spite of the monogram initials. On page 24 of the second edition of his little booklet, Plas Newydd with a Catalogue of its Contents; (Llangollen, 1883),3 General John Yorke, in an inventory of the contents of Plas Newydd as they were during his residence there, mentions, among many other items in' The Ante-Room Downstairs a lithograph of Mary Carryl for many years Servant to the Ladies of Llangollen, drawn from life by the late Lady Delamere.' The title on the print certainly seems to be the same as that pencilled on the original drawing. General Yorke also reproduced the portrait, complete with the V.R. monogram, in a much reduced form (2-1 ins. x if ins.) on page 45, but there is no copy of the lithograph itself in the National Library. Mary Carryl died on November 22, 1809. Facing page 4 of John Hicklin The Ladies of Llangollen (Chester, 1847) there is a lithograph of the monument that was erected by the Ladies over her grave. In the inscription, written by Miss Ponsonby, lasting testimony was given to the regard that they had for her. The monument, moreover, was provided with three sides; the other two were ultimately filled by the epitaphs (also written by Miss Ponsonby) of the Ladies themselves. H. N. JERMAN. 1 Lady Eleanor Charlotte Butler (died 1829 aged 90), and Sarah Ponsonby (died 1831, aged 76). 2 Henrietta Elizabeth Williams Wynn (1780-1852) married in 1810 Thomas Cholmon- deley of Vale Royal, Cheshire, who in 1821 became 1st Baron Delamere. 3 See a note entitled The Royal British Bowmen on p. 389 of Vol. I of this Journal.
