In Bunney Church is a curious monument of Sir Thomas Parkyns, erected in his life-time, with a representation of the Baronet in one part in a wrestling attitude, and in another part as just thrown by Time, with an inscription ascribed to Dr. Freind :
“ Quem modo stravisti lungo in certamine, Tempus,
Hic recubat Britonum clarus in orbe pugil
De te etiam victor, quando resurgat, erit.”
'In Clumber park, amoog oumerous fine paintings, is the “Sigisntunda weeping over the heart of Tancred,” ascribed to Correggio, but by Horace Walpole attributed to Furino, with the remark, that “it is impossible to see the picture, or to read Dryden's inimitable tale, and not feel that the same soul animated both.” Hogarth, in an attempt to rival it, miserably failed. The state dining-room, 60 feet long, 34 broad, aud 30 bigh, is magnificently ornamented. The park is 11 miles in compass.
