"The German press !noke of me as a singer of the first order and a great artist, and many honors were showered upon me by tho public; but at home I had h.ilf a dozen half-starved children. Indeed, the spectre of want never left niv fireside while I was working exclusive ly on the Oertnan operatic stnge. In the United Slates I gave last year 130 concerts, each netting me $1,000."
