EDITED BY JOHN BURKE, ESQ.,
AUTHOR or “THE PBERAGE,” “ LANDED GENTRY," &c.
To Messrs. A. Rowland and Son, 20, Hatton Garden, London.
Linton, Cambridge, October 25th, 1847. GENTLEMEN,— A striking instance of the efficacy of your Macassar Oil in the restoration of the hair, has just come under my notice The person alluded to is a young man named Haylock, of Ashdon, near this place, whose entire head of hair came off by some unaccountable means. He purchased of me several different popular preparations, which he regularly and faithfully used, but without effecting the least apparent change. At last, I advised him to try a bottle of your Macassar Vil; and, on Friday last, he communicated to me the pleasing intelligence of the reappearance of a thick head of hair. You can make what use you please of this, and refer inquirers to,
J. SERGEANT, Bookseller, &c. ROWLANDS' MACASSAR OIL It may with truth be averred, that Rowland's Macassar Oil has enjoyed an extent of Patronage and Public Favour during the last half century, which is totally unexampled in the annals of FELICITOUS DISCOVERY. The extraordinary efficacy, and happy amalgamation of its PURELY EXOTIC MATERIALS, have rendered it justly renowned throughout the world for its remarkable virtues in nourishing, preserving, and beautifying the HUMAN Hair. The following is a brief notice of some of its PRINCIPAL VIRTUES. The subicct is more fully treated in a small Pamphlet which accompanies each bottle of RowLands' MACASSAR Oil, and wherein important hints and a lvice will be found on the Culture of the Hair of Infancy, and on its preservation and beauty through the several stages of human life. It insinuates its balsamic properties into the pores of the head, nourishes the Hair in its embryo state, cleanses it from Scurf ind Dandriff, accelerates its growth, sustains it in maturity, and continues its possession of healthy vigour, silky softness, and luxurious redundancy, to the latest period of human life. Its operation in cases of baldness is peculiarly active; so that, in numerous instances wherein other remedies have been tried in vain, ROWLANDS' MACASSAR OIL has superseded the ornaments of art, by reinstating, in full plentitude, the permanent gifts and graces of nature. In the growth of WHISKERS, EYABROWS, and MUSTACHios, it is also unfailing in its stimulating operation. For Children, it is especially recommended, as forming the basis of a beautiful head of hair, and rendering the fine comb unnecessary. Its invaluable properties have obtained the especial patronage of Her Majesty the QUEEN, the COURT, and the whole of the ROYAL FAMILY of Great Britain, and of every COURT of the civilized world; and the high estcem in which it is universaliy held, together with numerous Testimonials constantly received of its efficacy, afford the best and surest proofs of its merits.—Price 3s 6d. and 7s.; or Family Bottles (equal to four small), at 10s 6d.; and double that size, 21s. Caution.-On the wrapper of each bottle of the GENUINE) ROWLANDS' article are these words, in two lines.
S MACASSAR OIL. The same are engraved on the back of the Wrapper nearly 1,500 times, containing 29,028 letters.
ROWLANDS' ODONTO, or Pearl Dentifrice. A WHITE POWDER FOR THE TEETH, compounded of the choicest and most recherche Ingredients of the Oriental Herbal, of inestimable virtue in preserving and beautifying the Teeth, strengthening the Gums, and in giving sweetness and perfume to the Breath. Its invaluable properties have obtained its selection by Her Majesty the Queen, the Court, and Royal Family of Greut Britain, and the Sovereigns and Nobility throughout Europe. Price 2s. 9d. per box. Caution.-To protect the Public from Fraud, the Hon. Commissioners have directed the
Proprietors' Name and Address, thus—" A. ROWLAND and SON, 20, HATTOX GARDEN,” to be engraved on the Government Stamp, which is atfixed on each box.
IMPORTANT CAU TION. UNPRINCIPLED INDIVIDUALS, for the sake of gaining a trifle more profit, vend the most SPURIOUS COMPOUNDS, under the saine names; some under the implied sanction of Royalty, and the Governinent Departments, with similar attempts at deception. They copy the labels, advertisements, and testimonials (substituting fictitious names and addresses for the real) of the original preparations. It is, therefore, highly necessary to see that the word " ROWLANDS'" is on the wrapper of each article.
The Genuine Articles are sold by every respectable Perfumer and Chemist throughout the kingdom.
DIALOGUES AMONG THE DEAD.
FROM AN ORIGINAL AND UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT OF THE LATE
SIR S. EGERTON BRYDGES, BART.
DIALOGUE I. Sir THOMAS WYAT, SAMUEL DANIEL, DR. SNEYD DAVIES, AND THOMAS
Warton.-Do not shun me, Sir Thomas ; I do not intrude upon you from earthly courts and brawling politics !
Wyat.-Fate cast me into the fevers and bad passions of courts, but they were my abhorrence.
Daniel.—You enjoyed only the fields and the woods, as I did ; and was never happy but in contemplation on the banks of your own Medway.
Davies.- It was so that I wiled away my solitary life under the Herefordshire hills ; yet, I was sometimes sick of thought.
Warton.—The shades of our college gardens were sufficient for me, except when I could escape to the pastoral hedgerows of my quiet Wynslade.
Daniel.—Whenever I could think most, and moralize upon human fate and human frailties, I was most content.
Warton.-Books were my delight,-I could not live without amplitude of curious books.
Daniel.-Books but furnish us with subjects of sorrow; yet, I also loved books.
Wyat.-When I escaped from the court, I devoured them in the silence of my own fire-side. Davies.—Yes, in these dear retirements from irritating passion,
“ The Muse would take me on her airy wing,
And waft to scenes romantic !” There I could pore over the lovely fictions of my boyish days; the dreams and the ambitions of my youth, and the hopes that have been so cruelly disappointed. Wyat.-Fate did not allow me to know the feelings and thoughts of age. VOL. V.-NO. XXIII.
Daniel.-I knew the comforts of its mental fulness, and I knew also ts dejections.
Wyat.—Something of the experience of active life is necessary to give a depth and a realization to our moralities.
Daniel.- Perhaps so, but mine was principally the life of a recluse scholar, and yet I think that no one will say that the sincere depth of moral sentiment was wanting in my compositions.
Warton.—They abound with them in the most eloquent and impressive manner ; yet they never overflow. No writings exhibit more fulness of heart, and fulness of thought.
Davies.- Mine was sometimes said to descend to querulousness, as far as they were known (for I passed my life little noticed). I admit that I was subject to low spirits and the spleen; and that I had indulged prospects, of which I had not at all times the magnanimity to bear the disappointment. I thought that my friend Lord Chancellor Camden did not do all for me which he ought to have done.
Warton.—You were an Etonian, and you had contracted some of the Etonian expectations of fame. Did you never know Gray ?
Davies.-He was just sufficiently junior to me not to have known him. We should have suited each other in melancholy, and in our love of Latin verses.
Warton, I never was personally acquainted with him: I should have thought his manners too finical.
Wyat.—The divine morality of his plaintive poems has reached us here. I have trembled over them, and shed over them tears like human tears.
Daniel.—He had a most noble and spiritual train of tender and virtuous reflections, associated to all those poetical images, which emblazon the mind. It was said to be art-no art ever reaches such materials, or is conversant of such emotions.
Warton.--I sincerely admit all these praises. The course of my own life may perhaps be assimilated to Gray's, but they were different in their origin ; and the domestic affliction which Gray saw in his childhood, gave him a sombreness and dejection from which I was free. Probably my sensibility was not naturally quick, morbid, and indignant, like his. I would therefore rather sympathize with this depth of colouring in his poetry, than imitate it. It was exquisitely just, chaste, pure, and perfect.
Wyat.-The circumstances of life may suppress genius, but can never give a spark of it. “ Flowers may blush unseen," or they may never come into bloom, and tens of thousands do so: but no hot-bed can produce them, where there is not the true seed. Numbers have died without knowing their own innate powers of mind, which have perished for want of encouragement.
Daries.- Exercise and warm stimulants are necessary before one arrives at his strength ; I grievously found the want of these things, and fell into a miserable languor and ennui.
Daniel.—But you said that you loved solitude and contemplation ?
Daries.—So I did, but not without going occasionally into the world to furnish materials to meditate upon. Almost all the most affecting reflections we find in books, have flowed from men, who have returned from the world, after having been sated with its vanities and disappointments. Sir Thomas Wyat's moralizations derive a double force from the active affairs in which he had been engaged.
