to be the object of the Guild to carry out in its
method of work. This shop contains some of the
best cabinet-makers in London, and is capable of

While the working side of the Guild is assid-

Adams, who is general manager, the social side of
the community is not forgotten. On the last visit
we had occasion to make, there were festivities in
progress in the place to celebrate the marriage of
one of the members. There is an annual supper
as well as various other functions. We have
dropped in on a Wednesday evening and joined
Mr. Ashbee at supper with his apprentices. Some
of the guildsmen come in after supper, and some-
times an evening is spent in conversation inter-
polated with songs, catches, and so forth. Indeed,
one cannot but think that it is just this quality of
human relationship and the effort of the guildsmen
to create a method of life that shall be not merely
commercial, which gives to many of the articles
turned out at Essex House the individual character
to be found in them.
