    We have left little enough space to comment on what to many must be the most interesting features of this work, namely, the fine series of family portraits and other illustrations. They are all quite delightful, and the family have on the whole been most fortunate in their painters. The portraits from old Clunybeg downwards have an air of distinction which is partly no doubt owing to the costume, but is also due to the presence of a certain forceful character which appears in most of them.
