AHNGTCr. TO t?1n1THE ORACLE • • • 1935 “The name of Abington has been applied from several parishes so-called and formed more than 900 years ago in Northampton and Cambridgeshire, England.” History of Montgomery County, T. S. Bean. British Consulate General Philadelphia March 1, 1935 Madam, With reference to your letter of the 27th ultimo; I find from a very complete gazetteer of the British Isles in the library of this office the following places of the names you mention in Great Britain, viz: (1) Abington—A parish near Northampton. It is stated that ‘‘The grave of Shakespeare's favourite grand-daughter is here marked by a Mulberry tree planted by Garrick.” (2) Abington—A village in the County of Cambridgeshire. (3) Great Abington and Little Abington—8 miles S. W. of Cambridge, (4) Abington-in-tlie clay—A parish in S. W. Cambridgeshire, Yours very truly, Cyril F. W. Andrews H. M. Vice-Consul (for H. M. Consul General) George Fox, founder of Quakerism, at the age of nineteen, left his home to wander forth and seek that indwelling light which is the essence of the belief held by the Friends. During the three years of this pilgrimage, he spent some time in Northampton. Abington Street, leading northeast from the Market Square of Northampton, is continued by Wellingborough Road to Abington Park. This centers around Abington Abbey, former residence of Lady Barnard, Shakespeare's grand-daughter, who is buried in Abington Church. Abington Parish in Northamptonshire was listed in the Domesday Book as “Abintone.” 52THE ORACLE 1935 Northamptonshire was a favorite residence of the kings of England. The chief distinction of the ancient city of Northampton, to which Abington is suburban, is that a Washington was once its Lord Mayor. “Nonconformity, civil as well as religious, was the note of Northampton from the first.” “Northampton is the great shoe-town of England. Apparently there is nothing like leather to inspire a manly resistance to the pretensions of authority.” “On Tuesday in Whitsun, the Week, being the 26th of May, 1724, will be run for, from the Gate of William Thursby, etc., leading into Wellingborough Read, down Abbington Street, to the pump, upon the Corn-Market-Hill in Northampton, a Plate of £5 value, by any Bull, Cow, Bullock, of any Age or size what-so-ever, that never won the value of £5 in Money or Plate. Each Rider to have Boots and Spurs, with a Goad of the usual size. Every Bull, , to pay One Shilling enhance, which is to be given to the second best Bull, , the winning beast to be sold for £20 (if desired) by the Subscribers. They are to start at the Gate above mentioned, at 5 o’clock in the Afternoon. If any Disputes arise to be decided by the Majority of the Subscribers then present.” Northampton Mercury, May 7, 1724 “For the Diversion of the Neighbourhood.” “At the George Inn, at Guilsborough, in the County of Northampton, on Monday, the 19th inst., will be given Gratis a Lac’d Hat of the full value of One Guinea, to be played for at Single Stick. The same Evening will also be given gratis, a Holland Shift of the full value of One Guinea, and a very good Short Mott, to be danced for by Young Women; the best Dancer to have the Shift, and the second best the Mott. On the next day will be given Gratis, Six Pair of Buck-skin Gloves, to be Wrestled for, the best of three Falls. Note, none will be entitled to any of these Prizes, but such as actually live within Five Miles of Guilsborough and in the County of Northampton aforesaid, nor any admitted to Wrestle with Nails in their shoes.” Northampton Mercury, October, 1733 William Caslon. the originator of Caslon Oldstyle type, was born in 1692, at Cradley, Worcestershire, England. In 1716, he began work as an engraver of gun locks and barrels, and as a cutter of bookbinders’ tolls. Encouraged by William Bowyer, in 1720, Caslon built a type foundry. His type was so readable and distinctive that he soon became known as one of the leading printers in Europe. Caslon died in 1766. In 1800, Caslon types disappeared from specimen books. They did not reappear until 1859 when the matrices were brought to America. Caslon Oldstyle is now made exactly as left by Mr. Caslon in 1766. This book is printed in Caslon Oldstyle type. 53THE ORACLE • • • 1935 OUR FATHER’S LAND Sometime I pray, that if not I, my soul in flight. Will answer England's call of distant bugles in the night. Sometime I’ll climb the rough hewn steps of Arthur’s Tintagel. And stand on rocks and cliffs that reach forever—out to sea Where something calls. They’ll, crumbling, answer it unto infinity. The thundering booming of the waves that crash in Merlin’s cave, Will frighten me, perhaps, and there alone I'll stand—save For the mournfully crying, wheeling gulls that fly above my head, Perhaps, who knows, they cry for me; I might be dead. There might, when winds blow from the sea and stir the restless mists That heavily shroud the coast, be just a glimpse—a lifting of a veil That covers other veils—and dimly, far-away, there dully glows the Grail. There’s a degree of beauty that flies so fine, so high, No net of words, however said, can ever capture it. ’Tis that I have experienced and now— the mists roll in. My little throataches of unexpressed beauty, the pain of loveliness, Go on and on in the heavily gathering darkness. Perhaps, sometime, there will be those who really live, Who stand as I have stood; they’ll breathe God’s fine, sweet air. The spray sings in their face, waves thunder in their ears. They’ll stand awed, frightened, yet superbly splendid as they see Its faint, dull, glow. And—if they can express in words its utter loveliness “A fool!” They will be called, but those who call them that Are poor creatures. They’re to be pitied, for they’ll never really see So England is to me a land so far-away and like a dream. I’ll never realise that it shares life, is everyday, will be—for ages.
