An Ideal Love Letter. TYT Y DULCINEA : Here you have at your feet, Oh Queen of Beauty, a mortal who adores you and in whose heart there has been an aching void, since the very first moment that he had the good fortune of gazing at your majestic countenance. I have seen in you the angel of my secret adorations and words are a little less than nothing to express my feelings. 1 love you as the butterflies love the sweet flowers from which they suck the honey. I love you as Abelardo loved Eloise ; Paulo, Virginia, and Romeo, Juliet. As a wrecked mariner clings to the life-preserver, which in the dark tem- pest and among the turbulent waves is his only hope of salvation, so my darling, do I cling to you. Fail me, Oh fail me not. Let thy love buoy up my soul. Take me for thine own, and by your acceptance of my all, save me from a dark fortune, turning fear into gladness, earth into heaven! Don Quixote. Stray Whiskers. EROF. ALVORD. — " Eight times nine are sixty-two. " (Applause.) " No, sixty-four. " (Increased applause.)
