(After Oppenheim,) Eberlein. A scene from Goethe's Whilhelm Meister. In the garret of an inn, Paul, the wandering harper, bowed down with age and sorrow, is seated on the side of a couch, resting his head and hands on his beloved harp, seeming lost in a melancholy reverie. Mignon, the pretty dancer and singer of the strolling players, and the attentive young friend of the old man, appears at the door in her fancy dress, holding her tambourine; she does not disturb him, but resting her head against the side of the door, is waiting patiently until the harper's sad dream is over. Copied for the present owner, from the original in Dusseldorf. [P. 9.]
