[Boston—Saturday, 12 November 1870]

On Saturday she sang from Hamlet, the mad scene of Ophelia. As usual, her dress & whole appearance was of the most refined and perfect beauty and her singing we appreciated even more deeply than ever. She has not the remote “exalté” nature of highest genius, but she is the great singer of this new time and her realism is in marked sympathy with her period.
