he picked the child up and kissed her, also giving her a, signed copv of his "Three MorceauxLyriques" (Op. 58). On Tues- day morning last, Miss Gold's father re- ceived the following from Senor Papini: 5, Soho Street, London, W., August 26th, 1907. With pleasure I write these lines to sa- that I had some days ago the visit here at the above address of the child Maude Gold, of Tonypandy, which was, of course, a musical one, as the child played for me two or three pieces on her little violin, and also she read at sight a difficult one. What I have to remark about her efforts is this: âThe child is without doubt musical, her playing, though naturally not perfect yet, is in any case interesting, considering her age; and, of course, in the progress of a thoroughly musical edu- cation, and a, good tuition by an eminent artist-violinist, I have all the hopes for! her future successful career.
