The player at the end of the line repeated the story thus:
"A woman named Mrs. Siegfried Schleiermacher mar­ried for his money a man named Ikey Goldsmith, but found that he had given away all his property to his wife's relations. It was suspected that she so hated him that she poisoned him."
{Celebrated Poets as Reporters) The questions in this game are answered by the names of the wearers of the costumes. Question 1:
"A gown of grass-green silk she wore Buckled with golden clasps before; A light-green tuft of plumes she bore Closed in a golden ring." Question 2:
