Lady Sarah, and cannot but remember one touching
anecdote of her old age : how in 1814, the year before
the battle of Waterloo, Dean Andrews preached a sermon
in aid of an institution for the relief of the blind. The
preacher spoke of the King's blindness, and the interest
he had taken in this infirmary from his sad experience.
It was in St. James's Church, and a person who was present
relates that on one of the seats sat an elderly lady, who
appeared to feel deeply these allusions in the sermon.
She wept tenderly, and at the end of the service was led
out of church, being herself helpless from loss of sight.
It was Lady Sarah Napier, and she survived both the
King and the Queen, and died in 1826, preserving her
remarkable beauty until the end.

There are more recent and far sadder memories con-
nected with Holland House. One deep satisfaction we
may enjoy. The place has passed into careful hands.
The Hollands are extinct, but their history was a long
tragedy to the last ; since the first Lord Holland lost his
head on the scaffold at Westminster, a doom seemed to


hang over the holder of the title, even though the later
Hollands were in no way related to those who first lived
here. Every care is taken of both house and grounds,
and those who have been permitted to enter the old rooms
report on the interest which they still afford. Taking
the Library Passage alone, a kind of museum in itself,
we find there Addison's portrait, about the authenticity
of which authorities are so much divided ; next a picture
of Benjamin Franklin, then Lope de Vega ; then a copy
of Titian's Galileo, and Machiavelli, Locke, and Madame
de Sevigne. A sketch of Edward VI. by George Vertue,
the engraver, presented by Horace Walpole, and a drawing
by Reynolds of Lord Ossory, are among the minor por-
traits. Then a photograph of the members of the Congress
of Paris in 1856, with the signatures of the assembled
Plenipotentiaries below ; near it a miniature of Catherine
of Russia, with an autograph letter annexed. On either
side of the Empress are the likenesses of Napoleon and
Robespierre ; and near the photograph of the Congress
a miniature of the Prince Regent, a little bust of Earl
Grey, and a portrait of George Tierney. Fox has written
on the back of Robespierre's likeness, " Un scdlerat, un
lactic, et un fou." In other parts of the room are pen-
and-ink sketches of Gibbon, Voltaire and his friends, a
letter from Voltaire, the Duke and Duchess of Newcastle
at dinner, a crowquill portrait of Prince Charles Edward
Stuart, the Young Pretender, Joseph Addison's last
signature, and a frame containing a piece of wood from
the door of the room at Ferrara in which Ariosto died
in 1533. The passage also contains portraits of Milton,
Burke, Reynolds, Benedict XIV., and George Selwyn.
This anecdote is told of the window of the Library
Passage : "In the southern window is a pane of
glass, removed from the window of what, we believe,


used to be Rogers' dressing-room in the east turret.
Upon this frame of glass are cut some lines by Hookham
Frere. They date from October, 1811, and run as
follows :

1 May neither fire destroy nor waste impair
Nor time consume thee till the twentieth Heir;
May Taste respect thee and may Fashion spare.'

To which we add a devout amen ! and to which Rogers
is reported to have said, ' I wonder where he got the
diamond.' "

But though William III. visited Holland House he
did not take it. The Kensington bell-ringers had five
shillings for a peal when he passed through the High
Street, but a little later they received twelve shillings
for celebrating the victory of the Boyne so greatly had
the fortunes of Kensington improved between the two
dates. The King did not buy Holland House, but he did
buy Nottingham House : and from that time to the present
Kensington Palace has taken its place, and a prominent
one, hi our history. No one can hereafter write of the
longest and most glorious reign in the annals of England
without at least a passing reference to the birth within
these old walls, on the 24th of May, 1819, of the Princess
who, eighteen years later, here held her first Council as
Queen Victoria.

The palace has been through strange vicissitudes of
late years. In 1897 it was resolved to open the State
Apartments to the public ; but neglect and dilapidation
had necessitated measures of repair and restoration, and
it was only on Queen Victoria's birthday in 1899 that
the arrangements were completed.

Some parts of the old manor house which William III.
purchased from Lord Nottingham are still, it is believed,


in existence. The lower building to the westward of the
south front comprises, it is said, the central part and one
wing of the Abbot's house of Neyt. Here, or in a previous
building on the same site, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lan-
caster, lived for a time when the rebels had burnt the
Savoy. Here, too, Richard, Duke of York, was living
in 1448, when John of Gaunt's great-grandson, Henry
V., occupied the throne, and the wars of the Roses, of
York and Lancaster, were beginning to devastate the
land. Here, at his manor house of Neyt, the last Lord
Abbot of Westminster before the Dissolution died in 1533,
and the estate passed into lay hands.

During the reign of William and Mary great projects
took shape, but money had to be spent in curbing the
ambition of Louis XIV. on the Continent, and in securing
the Protestant succession in England. The building
of palaces at Hampton Court and Kensington went on
but slowly. Though the modern visitor recognises the
arms of William of Orange on the gate posts by which
he enters from the High Street, and sees W and M com-
bined in the weathercock over the portico, it is to Queen
Anne that we must attribute the more ornamental features
older than the Hanoverian period. The oak staircase by
which we ascend at the north-eastern corner is called
the Danish Stair, and is said to have been brought from
Ms Northern home by Prince George of Denmark. The
beautiful orangery close by and the still more beautiful
alcove, now banished to the furthest verge of the Gardens,
were designed by Wren for Queen Anne ; and to her we
may safely attribute much of the fine avenue which we
know as the Broad Walk. Queen Mary died in a room
which is not shown, but which looks into the Clock Court
and opens from Queen Mary's Privy Chamber, one of
the suite through which we pass to the State Apartments.


What Queen Anne and Sir Christopher Wren left
unfinished was warmly taken up by Queen Caroline,
the Consort of George II. She completed the Gardens
by laying out and planting avenues as far as the boundary
of Hyde Park, taking up for the purpose - several small
farms and other holdings which had been part of the
Nottingham domain. The Serpentine, a meandering
brook, properly named the Westbourne, flowed in a string
of ponds or waterholes through the eastern lawns. Queen
Caroline made a fair channel with an ornamental bridge
where the Serpentine passed into Hyde Park, a vast im-
provement, though it left the name as a puzzle to posterity.

Within the Palace, William Kent was employed to
complete the State Apartments. We need only mention
one of them here. The Cube Room, more correctly
called the Cupola Room, as it is less than thirty-five feet
high, though the floor is thirty seven feet square, was
finished in 1722. In it Queen Victoria was baptised
on the 24th June, 1819. Exactly underneath this great
chamber is an arrangement of pillars to support the weight
of masonry and marble, forming a low saloon, the Duke
of Kent's dining-room, it is said, while he occupied the
apartments on that floor. In this pillared room Queen
Victoria held her first Council.

In Kensington Palace, as we have observed, Queen
Mary died, on the 27th December, 1694. Here King
William died on the 8th February, 1702i Here, too,
died successively, Prince George of Denmark (28th October,
1708) ; his widow, Queen Anne (1st August, 1714) ;
and King George II. (25th October, 1760). George III.
never made Kensington Palace a residence, and its principal
occupants near the end of his reign were two of his sons,
the Duke of Kent and the Duke of Sussex. The brother
of the two Dukes, William IV., while he continued to


allow them to reside here, dismantled the State Apartments,
removed the pictures and tapestry to Windsor and Hampton
Court, and left the Palace to fall almost into ruin.

One of the last acts of Queen Victoria was to dedicate
her birthplace to the use and enjoyment of her people.
Since then the Acts have come into force by which among
other London suburban boroughs that of Kensington
has been established and has been allowed to take over
and include within its boundaries so much of the old
manor as was covered by the Palace, which previously
had been reckoned part of the City as well as of the
parish of Westminster.

In one of the lower rooms, on the same floor as the
Council Chamber already mentioned, a small gilt metal
plate is let into the north wall. On it is a brief inscrip-
tion : " In this room Queen Victoria was born, May 24th,
