How the Distinguished Amateur's Reputations Are Made, Sometimes. Herr Silbermund (the Great Pianist) to Mrs Bonamy Tatler: – 'Ach! Lady Crichton Has, For Bainting, Ze Most Remarrgaple Chenius! Look At Zis! It Is Equal to Felasquez!' M Languedor (the Famous Painter) to Miss Gushington: – Ah! For Ze Music, Miladi Cretonne Has a Talent Quite Exceptionnel! Listen to Zat! It Surpasses Madame Schumann!' (Whence It Gets About That On the Very Highest Professional Authority, Lady Crichton's Music and Painting (Which Are just On a Par) Are of the Very Highest Artistic Order!'
