The Advantage Of Wax Modelling Over Other Fancy Work

And one great consideration is that the sight is not likely to be
injured. The eye does not require to be fixed; it does not occupy so
much attention as to prevent conversation, nor need the body be
bent,--a matter of much importance with growing girls, many having
suffered affections of the chest, and others disfigured for life,
through continually stooping to frame work.

There is no monotony in this agreeable employment, for new varieties are
continually springing up in nature; and a visit to the Botanical Gardens
at Kew, or the Regent's Park, will at all seasons afford some fresh
specimen. In referring to the former gardens, I cannot forbear
expressing the deep sense of obligation I feel due from the public, and
artists particularly--being myself one of them,--for the boon bestowed
upon us by those powers who afford such facility for inspecting--free of
charge--all that is lovely, choice, and rare. It is perfectly clear,
according to my method, that the most elegant drawing room might be
used, without suffering in its appearance during its operations. I would
merely recommend that the table should be covered with paper, so that
all small pieces might be kept together, and easily removed.
