and here she is, the actress we already heard so much about from the big drama-success of Sarah Bernardt and Rachel. Here you get treated to a short excerpt from the actual drama. Need to try to find the script, it would be cool to record it in our drama section :9:

yes ! I was thinking exactly the same thing. It sounded like the text was wrongly put in that spot. It would have suited better before the play, when the author first mentioned the painter doing the portrait. :| I'm sure it was an editorial blooper, but since we shouldn't edit the original, I left it in that spot. But it's a sort of anti-climax after the stage play.

Thanks for the PL :)

I'll assign Rachel to myself as well, since I've heard so much about her now in the other chapters :lol:

thank you :9: I will probably do some others still in time.

Also for the record, I have not heard back from Mayah in a while :( I hope she is ok. For the time being I am orphaning her claims again. The project is going slowly, so when she returns they may even be available still. Hopefully we'll hear back from her again.

Section 8 PL OK :thumbs: :thumbs:

Beautifully read. Seems more about the niece than Mrs. Siddons though. I've noticed that about this author.

Thanks,

Thanks, aniroo! Yeah, might have been nice for Nrs. Siddons to get a first name at least...
