Notes and Queries; January-June, 1915, Vol. 11 free pdf Excerpt from Notes and Queries- January-June, 1915, Vol. 11: A Medium of Intercommunication for Literary Men, General Readers, Etc To my mind the walls discovered in Brampton correspond to the walls at present used in our own country, although I admit this holds true in only a rough way. Should I be assuming too much were I to say that these Brampton walls were once above ground, or at least in some cave or grotto? Their depth in the earth upon discovery might be due to gradual changes that had taken place in the topography and physiography of the neighbourhood. As to any doubt that might arise concerning the survival of the brick walls through so many centuries without wearing away and finally disappearing, I might offer as an example the artificial mounds and walls lately brought to light in North America. These were built during the Pleistocene Age. Or if the Brampton burial walls were constructed in a cave, they very probably were not submerged in earth until recent times, when the roof of the cave fell in. Whether the walls were built in a cave or on the surface of the ground, the important fact is that their peculiar construction, in coincidence with the method of burial in New Orleans, brings forth the idea of the topographical changes that have occurred in England. Was the region around Brampton at one time in the vicinity of a large river, or did the sea approach close thereto, making the wall method of burial compulsory? It is for those best fitted in this line of research to determine. Kenneth M. Lewis. Short Hills, New Jersey, U.S. The Literary Frauds Of Henry Walker The Ironmonger. (See 11 S. x. 441, 462, 483, 503.) 10.(a) 'Several speeches delivered at a conference concerning the power of Parliament to proceed against their King for misgovernment.' Published on 3 Feb., 1648, nearly a whole year before the King was beheaded, and professing (inferentially) to be a report of a conference between the Lords and the Co-unions about taking action against the King, this book is the most important fraud in English history. It is usually catalogued to the Jesuit Father Robert Persons, or Parsons, who, or Verstegan, wrote the original book, of which this was a piracy. The original is a rare work, owing to the steps ta en to suppress it when it was published. The following is the title of the copy in the Grenville Library at the British Museum: - "A Conference about the next succession to the Crowne of England. Divided into two partes. Whereof the first conteineth the discourse of a civil lawyer, how and in what manner propinquity of blood is to be preferred. And the second the speech of a temporal lawyer, about the particular titles of all such as do or may pretend within Inglande or without to the next succession. "Whereunto is also added a new and perfect arbor or genealogie of the descents of all the kings and princes of England from the Conquest down to this day, whereby each man's pretence is made more plaine. Directed to the right honourable the Earle of Essex, of her Majesties privie councell of the noble order of the Garter Published by R. Doleman. Imprinted at N. with License. MDXCIIII." The origin and history of this book have been exhaustively treated by the Rev. J. H. Pollen, S.J., in a paper entitled 'The Question of1000Queen Elizabeth's Successor, ' printed in The Month for May, 1903. Father Pollen seemed to incline to the view that its printer, Verstegan, poet and antiquary, was it author, rather than Father Persons, though I understand that he has since somewhat modified his opinion. The work is a learned one, but met, and still meets, with condemnation on all sides, both Catholic and Protestant. What is quite certain is that no controversial work ever had a stranger after-history. The full title of Walkers piracy deserves citation, if only to show how he succeeded in changing the original object of the book: - "Severall Speeches deliver
