Jepson Field Book volume 14 page 18
WIlliam Penn's Grave meet here once a year.  Below the gallery are other openings - closed now - but capable of being opened and the extent of the meeting house increased. Walked back across interesting undulating country - the beech trees coloring with golden hues the autumn woods.  Through quaint old villages, across broad commons like pieces of waste land, then along the Oxford high road towards London.  What is that church tower, said I pointing across the landscape.  That is Uxbridge, said Baker where we are headed.  After a while we came up to it, had tea and took train to Kew.  :::::::::  Oct. 21, 1905.  - day full of interest and suggestive of many thoughts of other days and the simple lives of the Quakers. - Mr. Stocks of Sir William Dyer's office anent my remark of the great colonizing power of the English and the bad luck of the French in their colonies said: Mark Twain's comment on the Biblical pasage: Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth", the only only place where the English are mentioned in the Bible." Anent my comment re the caustic and bitter attacks of the London daily press on the Scotch (linking them often with the Americans!) said No, we English do not like the Scotch.  Its rather curious: Nationally we do not like the Irish but personally the Irishman is popular with us! A [Scotchman] to the Magistrate: - I beg to obs-airve that I consider it vera hard on a God-fearin mon to tak' evidence on oath in a feeshin' case"!
