1 Fanny Elssler (sister of Therese, who was born in 1808) was born in Vienna in 1811. She won great applause as a dancer in European cities, appearing in Paris in 1834. She, with her sister, visited the United States in 1841. She took leave of the stage in 1851, and has since resided at her villa near Hamburg.
2 Pierre Jean David, 1789-1856. His first great work was a statue of the Prince of Conde. He was an earnest Republican, and his genius delighted most in commemorating in busts and statues the benefactors of mankind,—as scholars, men of science, patriots, and liberal statesmen. Sumner wrote to Hillard, April 10, of his visit to David: ‘I was presented to him as a Republican and an American, which at once opened his heart.’
