Inauguration of the Gillespie Monument, at Comber, 1845. Opening of a memorial in County Down, (now Northern) Ireland. 'The [Rollo Gillespie] Monument itself is a beautiful Grecian pillar, fifty-five feet high...divided into compartments, on each of which is sculptured a representation of one of the principal scenes of Gillespie's brilliant career, and surmounted by a statue of the hero himself, standing in a graceful attitude, with his sword in his right hand...An inscription reads: '"Robert Rollo Gillespie. Major-General, and Knight Commander of the Most Honourable the Military Order of the Bath, born at Comber, 1766, after a brief but glorious career, fell in battle, before the fortress of Kalunga, on the 31st of October, 1814. His last words were - 'One shot more for the honour of Down.' A Monument at Meerut [Uttar Pradesh, India], in the East, marks the grave where his ashes rest'.

Laying the Foundation-Stone of the Girls School, Caledonian Asylum, 1844

Laying the Foundation-Stone of the Girls School, Caledonian Asylum, 1844. ...the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the building intended for the Girls School...took place on the site in Copenhagen Fields [in London]. The Directors of the charity have had it in contemplation for some years past to admit girls as well as boys...but want of funds prevented their carrying this benevolent purpose into effect. However, through the munificence of Mr. Matheson, M.P. for Ashburton, who has subscribed £1000 expressly for enlarging the building for the reception of girls, and by subscriptions on┬áthe part of the friends of the charity, the Directors have been enabled to proceed with the good work of extension; and they expect that in the course of the autumn the building will be opened for the admission of girls who are descendants of Scottish parents. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
