1896.
since last spring. One mere boy was doing very well on a lovely Henner
lady - and one giddy girl copied some cupids to actual distraction - such looking babes! We were all simply wrecks when we left, dragged ourselves to the car, and as for me, I shed everything tight and put up my feet on a chair and read Caspar Whitney's Experiences in the cold cold north. We dined with Gordon at 6:30 - and he told us about Will Orchard's debts & extravagances & delights &c. Will is down at Mitchell's on Washington Square. Madden had gone out to dinner tonight - both were out till 1:30 the night before and walked untold miles seeing everything architectural to be seen. We walked down to Garrick's with Gordon & bade him good- bye & then climbed to our seats at the Fifth Avenue. They were way over to one side, but near the stage, for which I was glad. I can't try & describe that delighful woman - Duse - but she is certainly a genius and her company all partake of her inspiration and are all good - Duval especially - and the maid. She, I mean Duse - made Camille a delightful and attractive - way up above those women other people portray - and I think much finer than Dumas was capable of imagining. The whole play was as natural & simple as life itself and no one seemed to know there was an audience anywhere about, until that audience insisted - at the end of each act - on repeated recognition. Many were Italians-& as the play & the actors were also - they enjoyed it tremendously. From beginning to end I couldn't keep my glass off of her
