He did not patent this invention, but it would raise a point of some interest if it were known that he used the heart-cam for this purpose before 1775, when Arkwright embodied it in his " water-frame." The specimen alluded to suggests that it is much later in date than this; in fact the wheel is obviously intended for a drawingroom at a period when hand spinning had become merely an affectation of the wellto-do. Can anyone give dates ?

THE HOUSE OF HUSBANDRY.--There has been recently presented to the Shakespeare Birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon, a deed of 1619, referring to the division of the Great Farm of Broadway, owned by Mistress Ann Daston. In it occurs the phrase House of Husbandry." I have not met with these words in any previous deed. Is this a common phrase, and may it be taken to refer to a farmhouse? E. A. B. B.

I have one of the latter, engraved by an Edinburgh firm and dated St. Joseph-182-," drawn on the "Bank of Poyais" by authority of "His Highness Gregor, Cazique of Poyais."
The frauds therefore seem to have occurred between 1820 and 1830. I once saw them referred to in a Press article by the late Geo. A. Sala. I believe England once had a colony on the Mosquito Coast, and a paper thereon, styled A Forgotten Puritan Colony,' appeared in Blackwood
GENERAL CYRUS TRAPAUD: PORTRAIT BY SIR JOSHUA REYNOLDS.-Can anyone tell me in whose possession this picture is now? It was painted in 1760 and is mentioned in 'A History of the Works of Sir Jospha Reynolds, P.R.A.,' by Algernon Graves, F.R.S., and William Vine Cromi, vol. iii., p. 985. The portrait of his wife, Mrs. Catherine Trapaud, by Sir Joshua Reynolds, is also mentioned at p. 986 of the same book, and is at the Dublin National Picture Gallery. There is also an engraving of same at the British Museum by Fisher.
General Cyrus Trapaud was an ensign at the Battle of Dettingen, 1743, where the horse of George II. ran away with him; fortunately Trapaud seized him by the bridle and thereby saved the King's life.
