now stares me in the face, and the anxiety arising from the responsibility of my course quite overcomes me. I have in my letters to several of my friends alluded particularly to my feelings, and also defended my plan of travel; but to you I need start no such idea.

Every evening of my first week in Paris I passed with her. As ever, affectionately yours, C. S. Have seen Mademoiselle Mars in Moliere's Les Femmes Savantes. It was a treat which I shall never forget. Her voice is like a silver flute; her eye like a gem. Have met several professors. Journal. Jan. 13, 1
