Some forty years ago. Charles Read wrote in his diary: " This.day received a visit from Miss Ellen Terry, a little lady as full of genius as an egg is full of meat." Miss Terry, who will appear in a scene from ' The Merry Wives of Windsor " at the gala per-formance at His Majesty's Theatre on June 27, was then a favourite with the playgoing public. She made her first appearance on the stage in 1856, when eight years of age, at the Princess's Theatre. She comes of a famous theatrical family. Her father and mother were actors, while her sisters Kate, Marion, and Florence, and her brothers George, Charles, and Fred Terry, as well as her two children, "Miss Ailsa Craig" and Mr. Gordon Craig, have all won success behind the footlights. Miss Terry has been married three times. In her 'teens she was married to the famous artist George Frederick Watts. The union was a brief and not a happy one. and after its dissolution she became the wife of Mr. E. A. Wardell, better known as Charles Kelly, one of the finest actors of his day. In 1907 she married Mr. James Carew, a well-known American actor.
