"A scene from the well known opera of the same name. Scene III. - Pierotto appears on the hill, and falteringly follows the sound of the music, till she reaches a bench, on which she falls exhausted. " Pierotto - 'In this way have we travel'd/ two hundred leagues. Every morning, when I have wished her the journey to pursue,/ I have caused her to hear this tune - /which, notwithstanding her madness,/ of her dear mother reminds her, and in her breast/ both strength and courage revive.' " From the original by Ferero, by A. Ratti, Rome." [P. 47.]
