A section of glass removed from the Old Bush Inn, at Carlisle, where Hume etched a four line stanza in the window of his room of the delightful environs of Corby Castle:
"H. Evans, 2d Oct 1769
Here chicks in eggs for breakfast sprawl;
Here godless boys God's glories squall;
Here heads of Scotchmen guard the wall;
But Corbie walks allone for all."
25 x 18cm, [? eighteenth century], together with LONSDALE (HENRY) The Worthies of Cumberland, Routledge, 1872, and a newspaper cutting from the Carlisle Journal 10 July 1844.
