She not only occupied my heart, but my whole thoughts; I could think of nothing else, speak of nothing else, and, what was worse, do nothing else: it burned up the very capabilities of action, and rendered my native indolence yet more indolent. Deplorable patrimony! heir of his mother's features the sacrifice of his father's weakness." Kean could not have touched this last burst.

Classical purity and refinement of taste are his specialties as an actor, and neither power nor intensity.

They pursue Kean to his dressing-room at the theatre; where, unluckily, the Ambassadress herself has taken refuge.

Let it suffice to say, that, by universal consent, I was preferred to Kean; and the only fault the most critical observer could find to the representative of Desdemona, was a rather unlady-like fondness for snuff. But, whatever little demerits our acting might have displayed, were speedily forgotten in a champagne supper.

In 1832, the play was revived at Covent Garden with extraordinary splendour, and a magnificent cast. Charles Kemble played King Henry; Mr.
