Additonally inscribed on the verso: "Peace and blessing in all things, always and in all hands. H.E.C.A" A striking portrait of Cardinal Manning, one of the most influential clergyman in 19th century England. Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892) rose through the ranks of the Anglican church to become Archdeacon of Chichester before famously converting to Catholicism in 1851 as his colleague Cardinal Newman had done before him. In 1865 Manning was appointed Archbishop of Westminster, the de facto head of the Catholic Church in England, and in 1875 he was created Cardinal. His emphasis on social justice and his open-door policy made him a popular figure in London, and "the scenes at his funeral on 21 January [1892] and the crowds that thronged the streets for the 4 miles between the Brompton Oratory and Kensal Green cemetery (where he was buried) had no precedent, it was observed, since the death of the first duke of Wellington ... He believed passionately that Christians of different communions could and should learn from one another, and should be prepared to work together in endeavours of 'practical Christianity', as he himself demonstrated in his co-operation with nonconformists and the Salvation Army to save men's bodies as well as their souls. Finally, in the course of his archiepiscopate he taught his fellow Catholics that the time had come for them to emerge from the twilight and to show themselves as a powerful pressure group, whose interests and concerns could not be ignored. If they doubted their ability to do so, they had only to witness the example of his own life" (ODNB). From the collection of Lady Samuel
