"On the East side of the Village of Amwell, at the

"foot of the steep bank on which the Church is si

"tuated, rises a considerable Spring, which, together

"with that of Chadwell, forms the New River. This

"Spring has been enlarged into a spacious basin; in

"the centre of which is a small Islet, where, beneath

"the mournful shade of Weeping Willows and other

"trees, a Monumental Pedestal was erected a few

"years since, by the late celebrated Architect Robert

"Mylne, Esq. to the Memory of Sir Hugh Myddleton."

Clutterbuck's Hist, of Herts, vol. ii. p. 5. There are

four inscriptions, both in Latin and English upon this

stone, and also the following verses:

"Amwell, perpetual be thy stream,

"Nor e'er thy springs be less,
"Which thousands drink, who never dream

"Whence flows the boon they bless,
"Too often thus, ungrateful man
"Blind and unconscious lives;
"Enjoys kind Heav'n's indulgent plan,
"Nor thinks of Him who gives."
