Last night I got up an entertainment in the Town Hall for the Dublin Library.
There were beautiful tableaux arranged by artists, in a full-sized frame — mostly simple figures, Venetian, Swiss, etc. The unique one was a Madonna with children holding lilies (by Bellini), the Madonna being Mary Thayer, the artist's daughter, who has a singularly beautiful face.

Heard Collyer in a really remarkable sermon in his familiar way on the importance of being our individual selves in the future life.
Animals he thought might live forever on earth, for they had no individuality to go on developing, apparently; but human beings needed spheres for constant development.
The angel life as commonly described too vague; the angels never had fathers and mothers, never fell in love.
He quoted a man who said he preferred hell to annihilation.
Told us several good stories; as

May 5. A visit from Contessa di Taverna to confer with me about the new departure [the International Council of Women]. She says that the ladies will not promise to pay the stipulated contribution, five hundred lire once in five years, to the parent association. ..
May 8. An exquisite hour with dear Maud on the terrace — the roses in their glory, red, white, and yellow; honeysuckle out, brilliant.
We sat in a sheltered spot, talked of things present and to come.
Robert Collyer to lunch.
I asked him to say grace, which he did in his lovely manner.
He enjoyed Maud's terrace with views of St. Peter's and the mountains.
In the afternoon took a little drive.
Several visitors called, among them Louisa Broadwood, from whom I learned that the little Committee for a Woman's Council is going on. The ladies have decided not to join the International at present, but to try and form an Italian Council first.
