We see ourselves gathered in the great dining-room, where the grand piano was, and the Gobelin carpet with the strange beasts and fishes, bought at the sale of the ex-King Joseph Bonaparte's furniture at Bordentown, and the Snyders' Boar Hunt, which one of us could never pass without a shiver; see ourselves dancing to our mother's playing,--wonderful dances, invented by Flossy, who was always premiere danseuse, and whose Lady MacBETHeth dagger dance was a thing to remember. Then perhaps the door would open, and in would come Papa as a bear, in his fur overcoat, growling horribly, and chase the dancers into corners, they shrieking terrified delight. Again, we see ourselves clustered round the piano while our mother sang to us; songs of all nations, from the Polish drinking-songs that Uncle Sam had learned in his student days in Germany, down to the Negro melodies which were very near our hearts. Best of all, ho

my's death, nothing has happened that has given me so much personal pain as this event. The city is paralyzed. But we can only work on, and trust in God. Our father's face of tragedy, the anguish in his voice, as he called us down to hear the news, come vividly before us to-day, one of the clearest impressions of our youth. Our mother went with him next day to hear Governor Andrew's official announcement of the murder to the Legislature, and heard with deep emotion his quotation from MacBETHeth :-- Besides, this Duncan Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been So clear in his great office, that his virtues Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against The deep damnation of his taking-off, etc. Wednesday, April 19, was:-- The day of President Lincoln's funeral. A sad, disconnected day. I could not work, but strolled around to see the houses, variously draped in black and white. Went to Bartol's church, not knowing of a service at our own. Bartol's remarks were tend

Madame Ristori made me repeat my part several times, insisting that my manner was too reserved and would make hers appear extravagant. I did my best to conform to her wishes, and the reading was duly applauded. Reminiscences, p. 425. Another performance was arranged in which Madame Ristori gave the sleep-walking scene from MacBETHeth. The question arose as to who should take the part of the attendant. Why not your sister? said Ristori to Mrs. Terry. No one could do it better In the spring, the travellers made a short tour in southern Italy. One memory of it is given in the following verses:-- Near Amalfi Hurry, hurry, little town, With thy labor up and down. Clang the forge and roll the wheels, Spring the shuttle, twirl the reels. Hunger comes. Every woman with her hand Shares the labor of the land; Every c

It may have been for this Club that she wrote her Parlor MacBETHeth, an extravaganza in which she appeared as the impersonation of the whole Macbeth family. In the prologue she says:-- As it is often said and supposed that a woman is at the bottom of all the mischief that is done under the sun, I appear . F. C.

Have heard much music and have seen Salvini once, in the Gladiator, and hope to see him on Thursday, in MacBETHeth. How are the dear children? I do want to see them, 'specially July Ward.... May 27.
