His Musical Career


Reference


His Musical Career by Charles Chaplin, 1914:



"It had an effect on him — he stood staring. The subject of their contention had finished singing; he left the piano, and his recognition of what — a little awkwardly — didn't take place in celebration of this might nevertheless have been an acclaimed operatic tenor's series of repeated ducks before the curtain. So he bowed himself over to Daisy. 'Won't you come to the other room and have some tea?' he asked — offering Mrs. Walker's slightly thin refreshment as he might have done all the kingdoms of the earth."
— Henry James, Daisy Miller
