Windermere (In. S. nave Pillar, on spring of arch, with rudely ornamented label, &c. Hic est ille dies renov(an)te Celebrior anno, Quem facit et proprio Signat amore Deus. Euge, boni, stygiis quae Conjurata tenebris, Nunc mala Diviná Fabula facta manu. Anglia mole suae mox Conspicienda ruinæ Psallat, ut æthereâ Libera mansit ope. Exultat Anglia. Faucibus eripior Fauxis, Quasi carcere mortis Gloria in excelsis Hinc mea tecta salus. Christoferus Philipson Junior Generosus. 1629.* * The text of these verses referring to the Gunpowder Plot, as here copied by Mr. Bellasis, agrees, save in the original " Fauxis, " re-instated for the unmeaning substituted " Tauris," with that of Chancellor Ferguson, who notices this destruction of the whole point of the composition in his " Bowness Church & its Old Glass," p. 6, reprinted from the Transactions of the Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archreological Society, in 1879. In Mr. Clowes's " Description of the East Window of St. Martin's, Windermere," p. 7, 1874, whose exact division of the lines has not been followed, there seem to be a few small inaccuracies such as " Exultat Anglia ! " in italics and brackets, and with a note of exclamation; the " f" in " Christoferus " is changed to " ph," &c. The Reverend R. P. Graves, Sub-Dean of the Chapel Royal, Dublin, who was long resident curate in charge at Windermere, translates the above lines (see Clowes, p. 7,). The late Mr. Hill (Hill MSS., ii., 223, 237,) declares them to be " not inelegant." In a livelier rendering which has come into Mr. Bellasis' way he recalls the line, " I'm safe from jaws of old Guy Fawkes." Mr. Hill tells us that the verses have been repainted since 1843, and that when the church was whitewashed some of the words were obliterated, i.e., Hic. euge, Psallat, libera, generosus (sometimes read " benevolus,") and parts of quem, signat, nunc, conspicienda, and renovante. The lines are painted upon the plaster on the underside or soffit of the 2nd arch opposite the church in old English characters. For a brief account of this Christopher, of Calgarth, who died in 1652, the Chancellor (p. 7.) refers us to " White's Lays & Legend of the Lake Country," p. 293, and to N. & B. I., p. 183.


Windermere (In. S). The Author's Epitaph upon him selfe made in the tyme of his Sickness. A Man I was, worms meate I am, To Earth returned from whence I came : Many removes on Earth I had, In Earth at length my Bed is made, A Bed which Christ did not disdaine ; Altho' it could not him retaine, His deadlie Foes might plainlie see Over Sinn and Death his Victorie, H'ere must I rest till Christ shall let me see His promised Jerusalem and her Faelicitle.
