France, was the son of either Francis or John
Paulet, who were the two sons of John, 5th
Marquis of Winchester, by his second wife,
whom he married in 1645. All these lived in
France after that date. All I know of the
two sons is that they lived to grow up.

HPHE DOMESTIC USE OF MARBLE.—
•*• The use of marble for chimney-pieces,
table-^tops and washstands has been relegated
to the category of the " impossible." When
was i t first introduced into England? I
imagine that it began with the mantelpieces,
where it might often justify itself. Consoletables, a French invention, I believe, are
fairly often mentioned in older French novels
and seem to have been mostly of marble.
Perhaps some book has a chapter, or some
periodical
an article on this domestic use of
marble

"MTNETEENTH-CENTURY CALUMNIES.
•*•' —What is the allusion in the following
passage from chapter xiv. of Trollope's ' The
Way we live now ' (publ. 1875) ?—
Some few years since, the basest calumnies
that were ever published in this country,
uttered by one of the basest men that ever disgraced the country, levelled, for the most part,
at men of whose characters and services the
country was proud, w'ere received with a certain
amount of sympathy by men not themselves
dishonest, because they who were thus slandered had received so many good things from
Fortune, that a few evil things weTe thought
to be due to them.

PEDIGREES OF HORSES.—Which ie the

horses — whether drawn up in England for
English horses, or drawn up abroad? Are
there any notes anywhere of the antecedents

WATERLOO BRIDGE.—Could any expert
"* in London history among your readers
refer me to any account of the speculation—
which I believe was not very successful—connected with financing the erection of Waterloo Bridge? Better still—I should be
grateful for some short general account of the
financial 6ide of the undertaking.

1THE OLDEST GENERAL.—The recent
•*• publication by The Times of General Sir
Archibald Wavell's lectures on Generals and
Generalship prompts me to ask who is the
oldest general to win one of the great decisive
battles of the world? A hasty survey seems
to show that most great battles have been won
by generals in their forties or fifties.
