I needn?t go here more than is essential into the question of Mrs. Munden, who would really, by the way, be a story in herself. She has a manner of her own of putting things, and some of those she has put to me--! Her implication was that Lady Beldonald hadn?t only seen and admired certain examples of my work, but had literally been prepossessed in favour of the painter?s ?personality.? Had I been struck with this sketch I might easily have imagined her ladyship was throwing me the handkerchief. ?She hasn?t done,? my visitor said, ?what she ought.?
