LADY JANE GREY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

LADY JANE GREY. [By Mrs. Oliphant in St. Xickolas.] I have been asked to tell you children the story of one of the youngest and most beautiful of all the notable; personages in English history — a girl who was at once a martyr or saint and a most noble gentle ?woman, and ?who ?wore for a few unhappy days unwillingly the crown of a queen. History has to deal with a great many terrible events and a great many hateful people, and has to record bloodshed and misery and crime se often that when there comes one lovely and gentle figure into it our hearts are all the more touched, and tears gather in our eyes at the very name ?which suggeBts one chapter pure of all evil. This is the effect that is produced upon all elder readers by the name of Lady Jane Grey; and most of you no doubt have heard of the aweet young English girl who, without any ambition of her own, was taken out of her simple country life, and from her books which she loved, to be put upon a throne she had only a distant rig...
