Stuart Maud Hamilton The Gilberts of Ashton and

pen in 1906. Evelyn Stuart dealt with the Free Trade Move-
ment and Anti-corn Law agitation, and the young girl, its

interesting to recall to-day, objected to one of her articles,

Kent, EDWARD, Musical Composer and Song-writer
second surviving son of Charles Kent; educated at St
Charles's College, Bayswater; has published over sixty
songs and musical sketches, including such favourites as
' The Burglar's Serenade," " Harmony Hall," and, in a
more serious vein, composed the incidental music for
Maskelyne's version of The Coming Race (1903), a work
written by his father's old friend, Edward Bulwer, Lord
Lytton, from whom Mr Kent takes his name.

Kent, RE V.WILLIAM HENRY, O.S.C. born 1857, eldest son of
Charles Kent, and great-grandson of Captain William Kent,
R.N., discoverer of Kent's Islands. On his father's side he
is a great-nephew of Bishop Baggs; and a great-great-nephew
of Esmonde Kyan, one of the Wexford leaders executed in
'g8;and a kinsman (through the marriage of his grandmother's
cousin, Maria Talbot, with the "good Earl of Shrewsbury")
of that uncanonized saint, Gwendolen, Princess Borghese.
From his parents Father Kent has inherited a literary
talent turned to excellent account. Receiving his early edu-
cation at St Charles's College, he began to contribute to
The Weekly Register (then edited by his father) in 1875. A
year later he joined the Oblates of St Charles, and was
ordained by Cardinal Manning in 1881. Between 1882-98
he was engaged in teaching theology, and since 1899 has
been occupied with parish work. His contributions to The
Dublin Review (begun in 1889), to The Tablet, The Ave
Maria, Blackwood, and The American Quarterly and Eccle-
siastical Reviews, have shown him an expert in Biblical and
Talmudic studies, Oriental languages, mediaeval and
modern philosophy and comparative philology. He has
made many translations of hymns, etc., from the Syriac,
Armenian and Coptic; and adds to his linguistic accom-
plishments a knowledge of Gaelic. Father Kent, thinker as
well as writer (two capacities not always united), was en-
trusted in 1906 by the surviving executors of Cardinal
Manning with the production of a new biography which
should redress the balance of the old, a task to which
Father Kent brings not merely the filial tenderness of a
spiritual son, but an open understanding, a heart as warm
as the intellect is keen, a dream of social regeneration, and
an ultimate realization of the all but lapsed maxims of the
Gospel with the daily life of men.

eminent for its converts to the Church) has used his pen as
well as his sword in the service of the Church, his admi-
rable letters, declaring war on modern compromises and
shams of all sorts having been a welcome feature of
Catholic journalism in the brave days that are gone.

twelve years old when his mother was received into the
Church, his own reception taking place three years later,
when he was a "middy." The young sailor had not long to
wait for his first taste of active service, for, on the outbreak
of the Crimean War, he accompanied the Baltic Fleet.
During the Indian Mutiny he served with Peel's Naval
Brigade, taking part in the Relief of Lucknow. He became

achieved by the Jesuits and other Catholic educationalists

means a politician of cut and dried conventions, early gave
proof of his originality and distinction as thinker and
writer in his Life's Greatest Possibility; while in 1897 ap-
peared Transatlantic Traits, the result of travels in America
companioned by the Hon. William Peel. He was appointed
in 1 904 a member of Lord Lytton's Chantry Bequest Com-

King, MRS HAMILTON daughter of Admiral W. A. Baillie
Hamilton; received into the Church in 1890 by Cardinal
Manning, with whom she became acquainted by his media-
tion in the Dock Strike. Profoundly interested in the wel-
fare of the world, Mrs Hamilton King, in such poems as
The Disciples and Aspromonte, gave voice to an enthusiasm
of humanity which carried so generous a reader as Cardinal
Manning far beyond the consideration of this or that detail
in the facts chosen for illustration. It is said that the poet
was willing that her new allegiance should involve altera-
tions in some of her published verses, but the Cardinal's
decision was " Not a line." Mrs Hamilton King (who is the
widow of the publisher, Mr H. S. King), is also the author
of A Book of Dreams, Ballads of the North, The Prophecy of
Westminster, The Foreshadowing of a Saint, and The Hours
of the Passion poems of spirituality, saints and martyrs
among poems, that this generation has not seen surpassed.

English College, Rome, whence, after ordination, he was
recalled by Dr Manning to Bayswater to join the Borro-
mean Community, to which he is still attached. He has
written some Reminiscences of an Oblate of St Charles; and

heritor also of the blood of a martyr, being a descendant of
Blessed Margaret Pole, has given her life to social work

involuntary martyrdom inflicted by modern conditions of
life on large classes of men and women. Miss Kirwan's
