NOTES

AND QUERIES

date of this handbill would be about 17.75.
Later billheads of this firm advertise their
appointment as perfumers to members of
the Royal Family at. No. 32 in the Haymarket where they were trading as late as
1802.
The memorandum made in the 1761
almanac, mentioned by your correspondent,
where the name of the perfumer is noted as
" Smith " would be:
JAMES SMYTH, perfumer to His Majesty,
at the Civet Cat in New Bond Street,
between Grosvenor Street and Brook Street.
The earliest record of the business appears
in the Daily Advertiser, 13 April, 1742, and
I have billheads of James. Smyth and
Nephews dated up until 1766. Miss.ScottThompson, in her book The Russells in
Bloomsbury, records one of Smyth's bills
for lavender water, at five shillings and twopence a pint, supplied to the Duke of Bedford's household in 1757, and she adds that
"the Shop survived, to be patronized by
members of the family well within living
memory."

This confirms Mr. Amphlett Micklewright's
statement, but with the proviso that the
reformers made a definite attempt to transform whai had become a superstitious practice into the pattern of sacramental and
apostolic usage.

PERSONS (cxcii. 57, 97, 98).—Reference to the tablet commemorating the tragic
death of James Woodmason's children on 18
January, 1785, in the church of St. Peter,
Cornhill, prompts me to inquire whether any
of your readers are aware of the identity of
the sculptor responsible for this work? A
printed account in the vestibule names
Bartolozzi, bu; t surely this is an error? The
authority for this statement appears to be

AST WORDS OF FAMOUS MEN (cxcii.

150, 240).—Chatto and Windus published a book at the end of the last century
called 'Familiar Short Sayings of Great
Men,' but this was not a book of last sayings
only. Brewer's 'Dictionary of Phrase and
Fable' devotes a few pages to " Dying
Sayings." Most of the larger public libraries
have a catalogue of the books in the British
Museum Library, and the County Libraries
would give advice.
