Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Women and Men, chapter 43 (search)
hat of a family with a scolding mother; and how admirably do they in turn enact a character which they have never even seen! I remember to have officiated in the humble capacity of stage-manager, long since, when two little girls of six represented the successive tableaux of a pretty German book, describing the day's friendship of two children. One picture represented a quarrel, the playmates pulling at a doll which each desires. The little performers got into a great frolic just before the curtain went up; there was not a moment to tutor them; but in the very instant, as the curtain rose, both faces passed into a look of childish anger that was absolutely startling. They were peculiarly amiable children, and had never had anything but happiness with one another; yet they brought instantaneously into their looks, without a hint from any one, an expression which Janauschek or Ellen Terry might have envied. Such a feat would be impossible to those who had no natural sense of humor.

d on one occasion, having passed the night without sleeping, on the road between New York and Boston, I determined, in spite of my fatigue, to attend the lecture appointed for that day. I accordingly went out to Cambridge, and took my seat among Dr. Hedge's hearers. From time to time a spasm of somnolence would seize me, but the interest of the lecture was so great and my desire to hear it so strong that I did not once catch myself napping. Dr. Hedge was a lover of the drama. When Madame Janauschek first visited Boston, he asked me to accompany him in a visit to her. The conversation was in German, which the doctor spoke fluently. Madame J. said, among other things, that she had intended coming a year earlier, and had sent forward at that time her photograph and her biography. The doctor once invited me to go with him to the Boston Theatre, which was then occupied by a French troupe. This was at some period of our civil war. The most important of the plays given was La Joie f
