“ [176] incautiously mentioned my name, I asked for hers, she replied, ‘Sforza-Duchess Sforza Cesarini.’ She had been attracted by my Breton caps, and especially by Daisy's beautiful version of this simple adornment. She is a reader of Rosmini.” 1

The Duchess confessed afterward that she had requested her maid to observe and copy the cap, and had been somewhat troubled in mind lest she had been guilty of a constructive discourtesy.

September 3. Received and answered a letter from Jenkin Lloyd Jones, informing me of my election to an Advisory Board to hold a World's Unitarian Congress at Chicago in September, 1893. I have accepted this.”

September 4. My last day at Sonnenberg. ... Gave my sister my little old Greek Lexicon, long a cherished companion. I had thought of reading the family one of my sermons, but my throat was troublesome and no one asked me to do anything of the kind. They wished to hear ‘Pickwick,’ and a long reading was held in my room, the fire in the grate helping to cheer us.”

September 15. Left Montreux for Paris. Reed brought me a beautiful yellow rose, half-blown, upon which I needs must exercise my old trick of versification. Paper I had none — the back of a pasteboard box held one stanza, the cover of a Tauchnitz the others.”

1 Rosmini-Serbati, a noted philosopher and founder of the order of the Brothers of Charity.
