RETURN TO ITALY
The Play--The Russian--Petri--Rosalie at the Convent
When the marquis had gone, seeing Rosalie engaged with Veronique,
I set myself to translate the 'Ecossaise' for the actors at Genoa,
who seemed pretty good ones, to play.
I thought Rosalie looking sad at dinner, and said,
"What is the matter, dearest? You know I do not like to see you
"I am vexed at Veronique's being prettier than I."
