"I will subjoin some brief account of my children, one by one, as they stand at the date of this present writing, November 1902.
"Mary, with a robust person and corresponding heartiness of character, has always done what she found doable in the way of gymnastics, swimming, boating, cycling, riding, etc. She has also studied some rather abstruse matters, such as biology, having no little desire to become a doctor ; one or two disappointments ensued, and the project has been relinquished. Mary has accomplished one literary performance. Being an ardent Napoleonist (I refer to the first Napoleon, and not to the third), she was asked by Mr. Charles Rowley to deliver to the Ancoats Brotherhood, in 1901, a lecture on Napoleon, more especially in relation to Lord Rosebery's book on the captivity in St. Helena: she complied, and was well received by the audience.
