Contents: A dancing, fleeting, light-hearted creature, quite ready for any adventure --
Not the marrying kind --
And what greater change exists than marriage? --
She had been distinguished as a flirt --
What wouldn't one give to have De Quincey in a box, and take him out to talk! --
Farewell to Edinburgh --
Craigenputtock no such frightful spot after all --
The outward figure of one's abode --
It is a work of genius, dear! --
She was like a feudal dame whose lord was gone to the wars --
In London, her own light could shine to greater purpose --
Who would not be provoked to see Titania in love with Bottom? --
A house in unfashionable Chelsea --
She could have married either man; she had not chosen Irving --
Ordeal by fire --
the French Revolution --
London's infinite variety --
Try all that ever you can be patient and good-natured with your provera piccola Gooda, and then she loves you and is ready to do anything on earth that you wish --
Let no woman who values peace of soul ever dream of marrying an author! --
Various mountains were now coming to Mahomet --
A clever devil, certainly, this Lady Harriet, belle laide, but full of wit --
He was getting up steam for a new book, a process always full of hiss and sputter --
"Your mother is dead!" they told her --
Old stand-bys and new, they thumped the brass knocker at No 5 Cheyne Row --
Jane was having her portrait painted --
Earthquakes and conflagration --
The conspirator Mazzini --
with the face of a highly intellectual, highly spiritual, highly idealistic priest --
Tennyson --
a beautiful figure of a poet --
Is your husband as much infatuated as ever with Lady Harriet? --
That's Jeannie Welsh! no other woman would climb the wall instead of going in at the gate --
The decade after the year of revolutions --
Christmas --
and peace on earth? --
The chief interest of today expressed in blue marks on my wrists --
Jane's husband and old lion now, but very much king of the London jungle --
Ten years in the valley of the shadow of Frederick --
A perfect triumph! --
In the warm summer dusk; in the quiet of the hours.
Responsibility: by Townsend Scudder.
