Paul Parnell, *‡ B.C.L., 1st Class in Classics, and 1st Class in Mathematics Easter, 1843. (Barrister-at-Law. Appointed Crown Solicitor for the Perth District, Western Australia, but died in passage out).
[I may perhaps be excused for extending this brief notice of one of my earliest friends. It was my good fortune to make Parnell's acquaintance when he left Oxford, and to continue his friendship till he left these shores. His career in life promised to be like that at the University—a brilliant one. He joined the Home Circuit, and when he was struck down by paralysis in 1852, was rapidly rising to eminence. He had at once to abandon his circuit, and to relinquish his profession, having had no opportunity whatever of realizing any provision for the future. No murmur or despondency was ever manifested by him, but with manly fortitude he accepted the adverse conditions of life under which illness had placed him. Through the friendship of Dr. Hessey his case was mentioned to Thomas Greene, Esq., M.P., for Lancaster, then the Treasurer of Gray's Inn, and what was more important, a Member of Sir Robert Peel's Government, and thus he obtained the appointment before referred to. I have the two last letters ever written to me by him now lying before me—both equally well express the tenor of his mind at that time, and I add the first, which reads thus:—
"I shall follow your example and express my thanks for your kind and useful present in writing rather than in words. It will indeed be serviceable, and, though I now hardly know how to use it and shall be glad if I am never called upon to use it in earnest at all, will add wonderfully to our sense of security in our new home in a penal settlement. And now, let me respond to the other part of your letter by assuring you that there is no friend from whom I shall feel parting for so long a period more deeply and sincerely than yourself. During the years in which we have been intimate, I think we have found enough of sympathy as well as of opposition in our mutual opinions and feelings to form the basis of a manly and liberal friendship. I have certainly been considerably your debtor, and only friendship could mark out the score. Though we are separated, that friendship will still continue, kept alive by remembrance and correspondence, sustained by the thought of the tie which unites us as members of one Holy Catholic Church. I will hope and pray that we may meet again in this world, that I may see my little godson (fn. 3) grown up in imitation of his Father's virtues, but I will pray more earnestly that we may all meet in the land where pain and sorrow shall be no more.
1839 Very Rev. Henry Longueville Mansel, D.D. First Class in Classics and First Class in Mathematics at B.A., Easter 1843; Tutor of St. John's; Moderator, Easter 1852 to Michaelmas 1852: Public Examiner, Easter 1854 to Michaelmas 1855; Member of the Hebdomadal Council, 1854– 1869; Author of "Aldrich's Logic with Notes" and Prolegomena Logica," and Joint Editor with Professor Veitch of "Sir William Hamilton's Works"; Reader in Moral and Metaphysical Philosophy at Magdalen College 1855, an office which was continued to him in 1859, under the title of Waynflete Professor; Bampton Lecturer, 1858; Select Preacher 1859; Hon LL.D. of the University of Edinburgh. Corresponding Member of the New England Historico-Genealogical Society, 1859; Professor Fellow of St. John's, 1864; Examining Chaplain to the Bishop of Peterborough, and Hon. Canon of Peterborough, 1864; Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History and Canon of Christchurch, 1867; Dean of St. Paul's, 1868; Hon. Fellow of St. John's, 1868; Elected Hon. Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, of Boston and Massachussets, on the death of M. Cousin, in 1868; Select Preacher, 1870. Died, July 30, 1871.
The time has scarcely arrived for forming a due estimate of the influence of the writings of Dean Mansel upon Theology and Metaphysics. The controversies connected with them have not yet sufficiently calmed down, and, even were this the case, these pages would not be the appropriate place for such an attempt. But it may be safely said that rarely, if ever, has a series of Bampton Lectures created so profound an interest, not merely at home, but in the schools of the Continent, and in America, as did that delivered by him at Oxford in 1858. The Dean's Essays, contributed to various periodicals, or written for passing occasions, have been collected since his death. A volume of valuable lectures, delivered by him while he held the Chair of Ecclesiastical History at Christchurch, is about to be published. And the "Speaker's Commentary" will contain his notes upon the Gospel of St. Matthew (the last of his literary labours), which were all but completed at the time of his sudden summons. The Dean's reading was wide and miscellaneous, and his mind was able to embrace almost anything. Though, of course, his strongest points were Theology and Mental and Moral Philosophy, he was deeply acquainted with the early Ecclesiastical writers, especially those of the Alexandrine School. He had a most elegant and refined taste in literature, and there were few English poets, from Chaucer to those of the present day, with whom he was not familiar, the older English dramatists being his chief favourites. He was a profound Classical and German and Hebrew scholar, as, indeed, the learned references occurring in his works clearly evidence. His memory was amazing, and whatever he had read he seemed able to reproduce at the exact moment when it was required. His public lectures were lucid and well-digested, and contained nothing superfluous or discursive. As an accurate and indefatigable man of business, he was unrivalled. He was everything in the affairs of the University, when resident there, and St. Paul's owes very much to his exertions and skilful negotiations with the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, during his too short tenure of the office of Dean. In private life and society he was a man of genial and kindly temperament, and sparkling with irrepressible humour in his conversation. In his friendships he was most warm and earnest, and was ever ready to serve those whom he cherished and valued. Lastly, he was not only a powerful Christian apologist, but "bore his faculties meekly," and was a genuine Christian man. He lies buried in the churchyard of Cosgrove, in Northamptonshire. On or about his tomb are engraven two sacred texts, one of them indicative of the yearnings of his intellect, and of his consciousness of its finite powers; the other of his hopes and of their One Foundation. "Now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face: Now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." "I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord." He had loved to dwell on these texts, and a loving thought selected them as characteristic of his habitual tone and temper.
