A fine quality print from a series of engravings designed to illustrate, by pictorial groups the character and costume of all nations. " Sister," said he, in the kindest, gentlest tone, " what is your age ?" " She is nineteen," cried her aunt. "You will have to answer me, Madame, by-and-bye," replied the Archbishop; and he put the same question to Henriette again. " I am just turned seventeen," faltered out the blushing novice. " In what diocese did you receive the white veil ?" " In the diocese of Toul" " How! in the diocese of Toul ?" exclaimed the Archbishop in a very loud voice. " The seat of Toul is void -- the Bishop of Toul has been dead fifteen months, and no one there can be authorised to receive novices. Your noviciate is null and void, young lady! and we refuse to receive your profession." He then rose from his seat, assumed his mitre, took his crosier from the hands of an acolyte, and said, addressing the assembly,—" My very dear brethren, there is no necessity for us to examine and interrogate this young lady on the sincerity of her religious vocation. There is at present a canonical obstacle to her profession. As to any future impediments, we reserve to ourselves the means to ascertain whether any such exist. In the meanwhile I forbid any other ecclesiastic whatever to assume the power of accepting her vows, on pain of interdiction, suspension, and nullity; and this in virtue of our metropolitan rights according to the Bull Cum proximus !" When he had pronounced these words, a sound, as of approbation, was heard from many parts of the building; but the prelate instantly sung, in a grave and solemn voice, " Adjutorium nostrum in Nomine Domini;" and, turning to the altar, he proceeded to give the benediction of the Holy Sacrament; while Henriette, scarcely able to support herself, was led to the nearest seat, where she hid her face in her hands to conceal her varied emotions, among which thankfulness was predominant. Meanwhile, though the considerate prelate, in order to avoid a public exposure of the nefarious proceedings of the Marquise, that he might not disgrace a noble family, had taken advantage of a violation of forms to annul the ceremony, that lady found herself so despised and avoided in the circles in which she had hitherto moved, that she was forced to quit Paris; and, on pretence of illness, she set out to travel in a foreign land. And in a happy marriage terminated this Romance of Real Life. All then facts are on authentic record. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
