Copyright, 1879, By D. APPLETON AND COMPANY.
In compiling and arranging the material which enters into the following
sketches of distinguished singers, it is only honest to disclaim any

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION
While the novelist has absolute freedom to follow his artistic instinct
and intelligence, the biographer is fettered by the subject matter with
