It is not to be forgotten though it be forgotten, that who ever gave any Lands or Endowments to the Service of God, gave it in a Formal Writing, as now adayes betwixt Man and Man, Sealed and Witnessed, and the tender of the Gift was Super Altare by the Donor on his Knees.—Bishop Andrews' Notes upon the Liturgy.

CONSECRATIQ CAPELLJ; JESV,
ET CCEMETERII,
PER LANCELOTVM

EPISCOrUM WINTON.

j]UXTA Southamptoniensem villain Ecclesia Beatoe Marine collapsa cernitur, solis Cancellis ad sacros usus superstitibus: pauc:e aliquot cedes ibi in propinqua parte numerantur; csrtera Parochianorum multitudo hinc inde sparsim inhabitant in villis, tum loci longinquo intervallo, tum estuario longe periculoso divisi ab Ecclesia. Ex ea accedendi difficulta te non profaura modo plebeculse animos facile invasit misera negligentia atque dispretto divini cultus, sed et viri probi sedulique pietatis cultores remoram in trajectu sa>pe experti sunt, haud ipso quidem capitum discrimine eluctabilem; consortem hnjus infortunii cum se factum sentiret (dum ibi loci familiam poneret) Vir strenuus Mchardm \Smiih Armiger, heroicos plane animos gestans, atque inspiratos de coelo, commune hoc religionis dispendium privatis quingentarum aliquot librarum expensis (aut plus co) redemit, et Capellam egregiam, qaam l)eo divinisque officiis dicari supplex vovet, in altera parte fluminis magnifice extruit.

Spectato probatoque Capellie hujus Jesu omni adparatu, adest tandem Reverendissimus in Chrigto Pater, Honorandissimus Lancelotus, Episcopns Wintoniensis, Septembris 17. Anno 1620. Hora octava matutina aut circiter; erat autem dies Dominious: Episcopus Capellam statim ingressus indnit se pontificalibus, quem secuti Itidem (qui ipsi afsacris domesticis aderant,) Malthceus et Christopherus Wren, SS. Theol. Bacc. Sacerdotalibus induuntur; Egressus dein cum illis Episcopus, convenarum magna stipante caterva, Pundatorem aflari orditur in hiec fere verba.

Captain Smith, you have been an often earnest Suitor to me, that I'would come hither to you: now that we are come hither to you, what have you to say to us?
