This lady gave readings last
Monday night in the capacious
parlor of the Central Hotel.
Those who attended were de
lighted with her readings, and
have cause to felicitate them
selves on their good fortune.
It would be cruel in us to tan
talize those who failed to attend,
by idling' them of the intellec
tual feast they missed by their
absence. Her manner is easy
and unaffected, . her voice full
and sonorous, capable of great
modulation. Altogether, she is
a superior artit.
The interludes were .most
agreeably filled by music on the
piano forte by Mrs. Goodwin,
who is a thorough proficient in
this science, and performs char
mingly. Mrs. Presley, an ex
cellent performer, executed sev
eral pieces, uccouipannying her
self with her voice.
