"This is the life of little me. I am the wife of Beerbohm Tree." Thus Lady Tree, who is to take part in the Coronation gala per-formance at His Majesty's Theatre on June 27, when asked to write her "life"-surely the shortest autobiography on record. Lady Tree has long been known as one of the cleverest of living actresses. From an early age she developed a taste for classics and mathematics, in which she took high honours. Her favourite subject was Greek, at which she was most proficient, once taking part in a Greek play before an audience which included the late Mr. Gladstone. Lady Tree was born in 1863, and married Sir Herbert Tree twenty years later, making her first appearance on the stage at the Gaiety Theatre the same year as her marriage. Her daughter, Miss Viola Tree, after achieving distinction as an actress, left the stage for the concert platform.
