The little'educational function of which Mtmmouth has just been the scene will perhaps draw attention to a town in the: Border counties richly endowed; by! nature, but rather unintelligibly 'neglected by man. During the late Duke of Beaufort's lifetime prosperity seemed to have visited the borough, In which may still be seen the ruins of the castle — John o' Gaunt's — beneath whose roof the Royal victor of Aglncourt en- . tered the world. Troy House, a few miles outside the town, was the place at which the Duke regularly welcomed the more or . less Bohemian visitors, who, he thought, would be less In their element at Badminton. Alfred Wlgan, Charles Fechter, and J. C. Toole were among the most frequent guests at Troy. ?
