Hamllton, Rlchardaon and Kennedy rejolced reopcctlvely in th.- nlcknamea ..f "Soapy," "Cato" and "Bnlggera."

We w.re in the gallery, and Terrlaa applauded bo frantically and shoutod so h.udly that I had Bome doubta aa to his aanlty. That was long before he had formed an] Idea of golng on the Btage The two brothera were almoat Ineeparable, and they invit-d me to vlsit them at th. ir tnoth'r's houae In Bayewater, where they batroduced me to her and to their alater, They had another brother, thi eldeal of tbe famlly, an ..tiicr in th.. army in Indla, whom I never aaw.
