Edwin Austin Abbey, King Lear (1898)            Ye jewels of our father, with washed eyes  Cordelia leaves you. I know what you are;  And, like a sister, am most loth to call  Your faults as they are named. Love well our father.  To your professed bosoms I commit him.  But yet, alas! stood I within his grace,  I would prefer him to a better place.  So farewell to you both.
