COMMITTEE FOR THE REPAIR OF THE TOMB OF GEOFFREY CHAUCER.

JOHN BRUCE, Esq., Treas. S.A.
J. PAYNE COLLIER, Esq., V.P.S.A.
PETER CUNNINGHAM, Esq., F.S.A.
WILLIAM RICHARD DRAKE, Esq., F.S.A.
THOMAS W. KING, Esq., F.S.A.

SAMUEL SHEPHERD, Esq., F.S.A.
WILLIAM J. THOMS, Esq., F.S.A.

The Tomb of Geoffrey Chaucer in Westminster Abbey is fast mouldering into
irretrievable decay. A sum of One Hundred Pounds will effect a perfect
repair. The Committee have not thought it right to fix any limit to the
contribution; they themselves have opened the list with a subscription from
each of them of Five Shillings; but they will be ready to receive any
amount, more or less, which those who value poetry and honour Chaucer may
be kind enough to remit to them.

Subscriptions have been received from the Earls of Carlisle, Ellesmere, and
Shaftesbury, Viscounts Strangford and Mahon, Pres. Soc. Antiq., The Lords
Braybrooke and Londesborough, and many other noblemen and gentlemen.

Subscriptions are received by all the members of the Committee, and at the
Union Bank, Pall Mall East. Post-office orders may be made payable at the
Charing Cross Office, to William Richard Drake, Esq., the Treasurer, 46.
Parliament Street, or William J. Thomas, Esq., Hon. Sec., 25. Holy-Well
Street, Millbank.

Money, the Development of the Art of Coining in Greece and her Colonies,
its Progress during the extension of the Roman Empire, and its decline as
an Art with the Decay of that Power. By H. N. HUMPHREYS.

"It is needless to remark how desirable an addition such a work as this
must be to the library of the historian, the classical scholar, and the
clergyman, no less than to the artist." - _Daily News._
