A critic of rare taste, and one not likely to be swayed
by the opinions of the multitude, speaks thus of Mrs.
Siddons as an actress, although, when he saw her, she
had been long past her prime: "What a wonderful
woman ! The very first time I saw her perform, I was
struck with admiration. . . , Her looks, her voice, her
gestures, delighted me. She penetrated in a moment to
niv heart. She froze and melted it by turns ; a glance
of her eye, a start, an exclamation, thrilled through my
whole frame. The more I see her, the more I admire
lier. I hardly breathe while she is on the stage. She
works up my feelings till I am like a mere child." (See
