On her arrival in town, Julia expressed a great desire to go to the theatre; and Mrs. Seymour engaged a box at Drury-lane 36 for the next evening, when the tragedy of Douglas 37 was performed. Julia admired with enthusiasm that charming play, which never ‘oversteps the modesty of nature,’ 38 and is so true to her genuine feelings; but which had not, till some years after this period, its full effect upon the heart, in having the part of Lady Randolph represented by Mrs. Siddons, 39 whose power over the human passions it is far more easy to feel than to delineate.
