and composure of a Chriftian, whofe views and hopes extend beyond this transitory fcene. Both before and after the arrival of his friends he was obferved to be frequent and devout in meditation; and his earnest request to Mr Smith's family, upon entering the house, was that they would both pray with him, and pray for him." So much intrepidity of mind, united with fo much patience and Chriftian refignation, in a man to young, and in poffeffion of every thing that could make life defireable, was what both furprized and pleafed the fpectators. From the nature of the wound, and the materials with which it was inActed, his Lordthip's fufferings must have heon great; notwithstanding which, co unmanly complaints, no vain regrets, fcarcely a groan, except where the extremity of pain compelled it, efcaped his lips. they were conveying him into the houfe, he repeatedly obferved, that his fervant was not to blame in what had happened; and hoped that his friends would be kind to the man, and comfort him. The poor fellow, indeed, requires this comfort, and has received it from the family at Holkham. He was faithfully attached to his matter, and continued for fome days fo overwhelmed with the magnitude of the evil, of which he had been the innocent infrument, that he wandered about in a ftate of mental imbecillity, closely borderAng upon infatuation.

As

When he arrived at

Holkham with the firft intelligence of the
accident, they could collect little from him
but I have hot my lord! the kindest
and best master that ever lived!" From
the time Lady Andover reached Mr. Smith's
houfe at South Creake, until the moment
of his Lordship's deceate, the scarcely ever
quitted his bed-fide. The firmness and
prefence of mind, with which her Lady-
hip inpported the most exquifite fenfibili-
Lies of grief, performing, with prompti-
tude, every office of duty and affection, are
fubjects both of encomium and imitation.
The remainder of this melancholy Rory
may be dispatched in a few words.
Lord hip died, as has been oblerved, on
the 10th of January; and, on the 12th,
his body was inclofed in le d. The E.
pf Suffolk, his father, was not anxious to
Convey the corpfe into Wiltshire; his only
request was, that it fhould be privately
and respectably buried. On Monday the
goth inftant, therefore, his Lordship's re-
mains were removed; in an hearde and fix,
to the hurying-vault belonging to Mr.
Coke's family, at file fhall, in Norfolk.

His

Sixteen of Mr. Coke's most respectable tenants attended, by appointment, in funeral habiliments, to bear the coffin and the pail, Two coaches with mourners followed. In the first were, as chief mourners, Mefirs. Coke, E. Coke, and Anfon, members of parliament; in the fecond, as mourners, two brothers of Mr. Anfon (clergymen), the Rev. Henry Crome, fen. and the writer of this narrative. At the tomb, every thing was conducted with that reverence and decorum which genuine forrow never fails to infpire. It were unjuft to clofe this account without obferving, that, from the first moment Lord Andover entered Mr. Smith's houfe, until the laft folemn fcene, no fervice that religion, or hofpitality or elegant accommodation, could afford, was omitted, either by Mr. Smith or his family. I have now difcharged the duties of respect to the memory of a deceafed friend. I hope I have difcharged them, with a faithful and a true heart. To guard against mifreprefentation, I thought it necellary to make this ftatement of an event that has excited univerfal fympathy; and with which I had an opportunity of being well acquainted. It is a painful fervice; for, I write under impallions of grief. The lofs of fuch a man as Lord Andover, and in such a quay, conveys to the mind ideas of difappointment, as well as of forrow.-It now only remains to offer fome remarks which arife from the foregoing relation. Every intelligent reader, when he perufes the narrative of Lord Andover's untimely death, will call to mind the fate of the late Marquis of Tavistock. There are many points in which the cafes correfpond. Both were young Noblemen of great promise; both were married to young and amiable wives; both fell during the lives of their fathers, purfing the ports of the field! These inftances of mort lity are not furely given by Providence in vain. They exhibit a fine lefion to the furvivors; and teach them to be upon their guard, "fince they know not the day, nor the hour, when their Lord cometh." The clouds that obfcure the fun of earthly, enjoyment are black and frequent. The accidents that inter rupt the progrefs of human plans are unforefeen, and irrefiftible. therefore, however he may poffefs the means of happine fs, ref confident of the end; neither let him fay, like Seged, lord of Ethiopia, when he rides in the morning, "This day thall be a day of pleasure." WENMAN LANGTON.
