“CREDE BYRON.”—Motto of the Byron Family.

" I have, in this rough work, shaped out a man
" Whom this beneath world doth embrace and hug
With amplest entertainment: my free drift
“ Halts not particularly, but moves itself
“ In a wide sea of wax; no levelled malice
" Infects one comma in the course I hold,
" But flies an eagle flight, bold and forth on,
“ Leaving no tract behind.” SHAKSPEARE.-Timon of Athens.
