This lovely gift makes life a constant happiness to, its possessor and to all who are brought into contact with her. She has all the beauty of gentleness and contentment fr her sweet face; and if at times it seems less lovely through some chance grief or disquietude, the hardest thing that one ever hears said is:
"Sylvia's dear face is pale to-day. It grieves one to see her so."
And when, on the contrary, she is gay and joyful, the sunshine of her presence rejoices all who have the happi­ness of being near her.*
* By the Comte de Caylus.
