satisfaction to me, since I am very anxious and restless about your having received it and not being dissatisfied with it. Hoping the best for your health and prosperity, the assurance of which from you would afford me extraordinary pleasure, I beg the continuance of your friendship and a place in your thoughts, remaining &c. My husband also sends his respects, &c.
(No. 4.)—Haydn To Mad. Genzinoer.
E'floras, Nov. 7, 1789.
» • * »
I pray your Grace's forgiveness a million times for my long delay in returning your so laborious and excellent work. The last time my dwelling underwent the cleaning process, which took place immediately after the arrival of the first movement, the manuscript was mislaid by my copyists under such a mass of music that not until within a few days past did I have the pleasure of finding it again—tucked away in an old opera score.
Dearest and most excellent Frau von Genzinger!—Be not angry with a man who values you above everything. I shall be inconsolable, if, owing to this delay, I shall lose anything of your favour (of which I am so proud).
These two movements are just as carefully transcribed as the first was. I wonder only at the pains and patience which your Grace thus expends upon the fruits of my small talents; on the other hand, I assure you, that in my frequent turns of low spirits, nothing so refreshes and enlivens me as the flattering consciousness of your Grace's kind remembrance; for which kindness I kiss your hand a thousand times, and in unfeigned respect remain ever
Your Grace's most obedient, &c.
THE LOVER'S LAKE.
BY E. WIIXIS FLETCHER.
'T is a clear and margin'd lake,
O' er it weeps the willows sadly; 'Neath those drooping tendrils't was,
Young Ralph swore his love vows madly. Yes, beneath those weeping willows,
Fair young Norah listen'd gladly; But't was there their vows were broken,—
Ah ! 't was there they parted sadly. Pearly dew-drops on the rose-bud,
Crystal as the ocean spray, Wither must at last the petal—
Then't will droop and fade away.
On the margin of that lake
Met they at the bright dawn early; On the pale primrose he knelt,
Swearing, ah 1 he loved her dearly. But't was there his brow was knitted,
Busely scorn'd, repuls'd her dearly — Willows weep for fair young Norah,
Rosebud cheeks, and eye-lids pearly. Pearly dew-drops on the rose-bud,
Crystal as the ocean spray, Wither must at last the petal—
Then the bad will fade away.

NEW AND REVISED EDITION.
THE VOICE AND SINGING.
1,4 The Formation and Cultivation of the Voice for Singing.' By Adolfo Ferrari London: Duncan Davison & Co., 244 Regent Street. 41 The great and deserved success of this work has brought it, in no long time, to a edition, carefully revised, and enriched with a number of additional exercises
which greatly increase its value.
"Since its first publication this book has met with general acceptance, and is now used as a vade-mecum by many of the mott eminent and Intelligent vocal instructors both in the metropolis and the provinces. We say vocal instructors, because it is only to Instructors that works of this class can be of material use. Singing is not an art which can be learned by solitary study with the help of books, and those who are self-taught (as it is called) are always badly taught. But a good treatise, in which the principles and rules of the art, founded on reason and experience, are clearly expressed, is of infinite value, first to instructors. In assisting them to adopt a rational and efficient method of teaching, and next to pupils themselves, in constantly reminding them of, and enabling them to profit by, the lessons of their master. In both these ways Signer Ferrari s work has been found pre-eminently useful."—Illustrated Newt.
