No. 217, ‘Temptation,’ J. Collinson. The story seems to be of two Eton boys, of whom one is just returned to school, and holds in his hand a piece of money, for which the other offers him some article of hardware; at least, so we read the story, for it is not very clear. The scene is the bedroom of him who is just arrived, and every object in it is most carefully made out.
