(1.) "He had played for his lordships levee,/ he had played for her ladyship's whim,/ till the poor little head was heavy,/ and the poor little brain would swim," (2.) "and his face grew peaked and eerie,/ and his large eyes strange and bright,/ and they said, too late, 'he is weary;/ he shall rest for at least to-night.'" (3.) "but at dawn when the birds were waking,/ as they watched in the silent room,/ with the sound of a strained cord breaking/ a something snapped in the gloom." (4.) "'twas a string of his violoncello,/ and they hear him stir in his bed:/ 'make room for a tired little fellow,/ 'kind god,' was the last he said. - Austin Dobson." [P. 8.] "Studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, and in Paris and Florence." [P. XLIV.]
