The Princess Elizabeth carried the crown for her sister in the procession at Mary's coronation, and• complained to Noailles of its great weight. 'Be patient,' was the adroit answer, 'it will seem lighter when on your own head.' The outward forms of godliness are as burdensome to an unregenerate man as was the crown to the princess; but let him be born again and so made a possessor of the good things of divine grace, and they will sit easily enough upon his head, as his glory and delight.
