The most remarkable monument in this Cathedral, is an altar tomb of grey marble in the south aisle of the nave, on which are sculptured a man and a lion in a grove of trees.

Seite 79 - Morton's prudence, generosity, and moderation, in exercising the rights and employing the revenues of his opulent see. Temperate, or even rigidly abstemious himself, he exercised a noble hospitality towards others, and a perpetual charity " to poor scholars, strangers, and travellers." On the advance of the Scots army in August 1640, bishop Morton fled to London, where he was soon after misused and insulted by the mob on his way to the House of Lords.
