Footnotes

  • Frank painted landscpae views of New South Wales, and exhibited with the Art Society of N.S.W.

    The inscription verson refers to John Milton's Paradise Lost (Book iv, line 598):

    Now came still evening on, and twilight gray
    Had in her sober livery all things clad;
    Silence accompany’d; for beast and bird,
    They to their grassy couch, these to their nests,
    Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale;
    She all night long her amorous descant sung;
    Silence was pleas’d. Now glow’d the firmament
    With living sapphires; Hesperus, that led
    The starry host, rode brightest, till the moon,
    Rising in clouded majesty, at length
    Apparent queen unveil’d her peerless light,
    And o’er the dark her silver mantle threw.
