sibly conduce te the proposed Honorable anderta-

“TIT? Ladies of Great Britain and Ircland are
very desirons of perpetuating their Sense of what they
Owetothe Valourand Tallents of the DUKE OF
WELUING TON, by a Monument ofa more lasting
Kind than a Dinner, a Masquerade, or a Fete, and
(hey haveaccordingly determined, to arise one, which
docs ercdit to their Gratitude and good taste. Phe
Subscription to this end is rapidly tihng, and altho’
(he expefce of so noble an undertaking will be large,
yelwe think the means will be adequate to the de-
mands. But for this purpose we hope to be assisted
by every one who feels as we do a strong desire of
lestilying in wsplendid and beautiful shape, the warm
Gratitude which the Duke of Wellington and his
brave Companions in Anas haveexcitedinour Minds.
And it ts to obtain the assistance and co-operation of
the Ladies in your part of the World chat I address
myself (o you during the absence of Lady dugusta
“Will you have the goodness to persuade some of
the principal Women withia your reach to become
active Supporters of this interesting Memorial ? ‘The
caver manner with which it has been received in this
Country givesme the best hopes that its Success will
be equally certain in every quarter of the World,
Where Baglishe Women are established, and where
English feelings are participated by them.
“The Alto Keltevos round the pedestal of the Group
which isto forin this Monument are to represent four
of the principal Victories of the DUKE OF WEL-:
LINGTON during the Peninsula War, and his Por-
tratt apd those of his Principal Generals are to be
introduced. Jt is tobe placediina consptcious situ-
ation in the upper part of Green Park, or in Hye
Park, and the whole of it will be about 50 feet high,
the figures in rclievo six feet.
‘* We receive any Subscription from one Guisea to.
fity. So that we include every class of Females.”
A PLAN is under consideration, to erect an.
appropriate Monument, to ‘Commemorate the sense
which the Women of Grrat Britain, and Ire-
LAND en(crlain of the Services rendered to their
Country by the Duks or WeLvincTon.
