"To dine," mid Emerson, "with a very old and dear friend. know where she Uvea, bnt I hope she wont ask me ber name." And then h proceeded to describe her as "the mother of the wife of the young man tbe tall man who speaks so well, and so on, until his interlocutor guess ed to whom be was referring. Even tbe names of common objects often failed him completely. On one occa slon when he wanted n-i mnhrr-lla be said: "I can't tell Its n.mic but I can tell its history. Strangers take away."
