PABLIAMEST HOUSE AT M A C H Y N L L E T H . — I n
Welsh Sketches, 3rd series p. 74, 1854,1 read the
"The great event of the closing year (1402) was the
Welsh Parliament, which assembled at Machynlleth, in
Montgomeryshire, in which the claim of Owen Glyndwr
to the princedom was solemnly confirmed. A part of that
most interesting relic, the old Parliament House, still
exists. It should be preserved with reverential care by
a nation to whom ara justly dear the recollections of their
brave ancestors, contending for ancient liberty."
May I ask if it has been " preserved," and what
condition it is in at present? What is its size,
and are there any engravings extant of it ?

OP BEBKS.—Henry Pratt was an alderman and
sheriff of London, and received the honour of a
knighthood, and afterwards a baronetage from
Charles I. in 1641. He purchased the manor
and estate of Coleshill in 1626, and died there
1647. A very handsome monument is in Coleshill church to his memory.
By will, now in the Prerogative Court, dated
1648, he names three children, George, Richard,
and Elizabeth. He entails his estates upon his
son, and heir, George Pratt, and his male issue;
and in the event of failure of such male issue,
then to his daughter and her male issue. To his
son Richard Pratt he leaves the sum of 5/., and
further expresses himself thus: " and my desire
is, that he may not possess my estate."
Burke, in his Extinct Baronetage of Pratt,
Plydall, or Foster, makes no mention of this
Richard Pratt, or his sister Elizabeth, or their
issue. I shall feel greatly obliged to any reader
of " N . & Q." if they can supply me with any
particulars respecting the marriage and death of
this Richard Pratt, say from 1648 to 1700.
I have in my possession a large China jug
bearing the arms of Sir Henry Pratt of Coleshill,
and this has descended to me through several
generations. My great-grandfather, Joseph Pratt,
was grandson of Richard Pratt, and consequently
great-grandson of Sir Henry. He died at Claverdon, in the county of Warwick, August 8,
1786, aged eighty-eight years. He came to reside at Claverdon about 1728. The family had
lived at or near Southam, in the same county.
Any information will be thankfully received re-
give me the reference for a passage (which I think
is either in Fuller or Baxter), running something
like this —
" Neither should men turn [preachers?] as Nilus,
saith Herodotus, breeds frogs, whereof the one-half
moveth while the rest is but plain mud."
I would be glad to have the reference to Herodotus as well.
J. D. CAMPBELL.
" God of a beautiful necessity is love in all he doeth."
I have seen the following lines quoted as
Dr. W. King's. They are not in The Art of
Cookery. Can any of your correspondents tell
me whose they are, and what is the meaning of
" Evander's order " ?
" The Scotsman's faith and practice please me not;
He serves his meat half-cold, his doctrine hot;
A churchman's stomach very hardly bears
Scant mutton curdling 'neath redundant prayers;
My zeal 'gainst puritanic haggis glows,
And cockaleekie makes me hold my nose;
Evander's order suits me when I dine,
So say a common grace and bring the wine."
" A'name that posterity will not willingly let die."
" Come to my arms, and be thy Harry's angel."
In a judgment pronounced by the late Lord
Campbell, he quoted the follo'wing lines : —
" Her did yon freely from your soul forgive?—
Sure, as I hope before my Judge to live;
Sure, as the Saviour died upon the tree
For all who sin, for that poor wretch, and me,—
Whom never more on earth will I forsake, or see."
