Procter, Adelaide Anne, the daughter of Bryan Walla Procter, better known as "Barry Cornwall," was born in London October 30, 1825; and died there February 2, 1864. Her hymns are sweet and pathetic. They are found in her Legends and Lyrics, 1858 (enlarged edition, 1862). In 1851 she became a devout member of the Roman Catholic Church. Possessed of more than ordinary intellectual powers, she was especially skilled in music and languages. Three of her hymns are given in this collection:

I do not ask, O Lord, that life may 542
My God, I thank thee who hast 29
The shadows of the evening hours 62
