These two companion-pieces contain a whole love-story. In the first the duenna has very conveniently been lulled to sleep by her warm wrappings, her comfortable chair, and her book. The music lesson suffers a temporary interruption, the master apparently feels obliged to give his pupil some direction about the fingering of her guitar--at any rate, he has seized her hand, and, to judge by the young lady's conscious, half-shy, half-pleased expression, matters are taking a very delicate turn. [P. 24; see entry 01430239 for companion piece.]
