Hematite Cylinder Seal, Old Babylonian period

Worship scene; a god, apparently with no distinguishing characteristics, stands left; immediately before him a lahmu holds a vase from which water flows; it flows down over the god's hand, as if he is washing his hand. Behind the lahmu stands a lamassu; behind her stands a secondary figure of the weather god Adad holding a forked thunderbolt in his outstretched left hand; he holds his right hand up behind his head, but whatever he carries in that hand, if anything, is lost to a chip. Before him is a small male figure, whose arms end in thunderbolts, half kneeling and turning his head back towards Adad.

Autograph letter signed, 60 Westbourne Park Villas, "Friday" n.d. From the Victorian novelist [to her publisher William Tinsley (though not so indicated on the letter; the letter is from a group of his papers)] concerning the publication of her novel Loyal: "I have been promised reviews in prominent places in the following papers. . . . If you will be so good as to forward copies of Loyal to each they will be put in at once. I have already given away two of my own copies to reviewers. . . . All my friends tell me they have searched in vain for any advertisement of my novel in the daily papers. I hear it from all sides. I think it would pay to advertise it more. I think it may have been neglected through your absence from business. . . . I shall not write another novel, till I see whether this answers. I have written a short story. If you think that at any future time you will have a place for it, I will send it to you, that your reader may look at it to see whether it would suit you?"
