GRYLL GRANGE.

BY THE

AUTHOR OF HEADLONG HALL.'

برای من )

Opinion governs all mankind,
Like the blind leading of the blind :-
And like the world, men's jobbernoles
Turn round upon their ears the poles,
And what they're confidently told
By no sense else can be control'd.

BUTLER.

LONDON:
PARKER, SON, AND BOURN, WEST STRAND.

1861.

The mottoes are sometimes specially apposite to the chapters to which they are prefixed; but more frequently to the general scope, or to borrow a musical term, the motivo of the operetta.
