The trustees of John Milton's cottage at Chalfort St Giles, Buckinghamshire, recently issued an appeal for £1200 to enable them to purchase an adjoining piece of land threatened by builders.

They now announce that Lord Wakefield has expressed his desire to purchase-this land and present it to the trustees as a means of associating with Milton's cottage the ward of Bread, Street, in the. City of London, of which, he is alderman, and in which Milton, was born.
