liim she wrote a play, called 'Surf,
or Life at Long Branch.' It made her
fame Instantly and she adopted the
literary life. Meanwhile, sho had
married Henry A. Do Lille, a writer
well known in London, Paris and
New York, who had aided Napoleon
III. in a cofidential capacity, and
was mado a Chevalier of the Legion
of Honor, but she soon divorced him.
She kept on writing, and produced,
among other works, 'Photographs of
Paris Life,' 'Chateau Frlssac,'
'Women and Theatres Tho Mimic
World,' and 'Get Thee Behind Me,
Satan.' At the age of thirty-three
she married William Wirt Sikes, who
was appointed by President Grant
United States consul to Cardiff,
Wales, and who died in London, in
1883, eleven years after the mar
riage. During this period of her life
she achieved great literary success
in London, chiefly by her description
of scenes in the house of commons,
from a woman's point of view. She
also traveled over all the continent,
interviewing celebrities. The emperor
of Germany received her, and in
Paris she was welcomed everywhere,
the younger Dumas being one of her
greatest friends. Then came the
tragedy of her third marriage. When
she was in London she hired James
O'Neill as an office boy. When he
grew older he became her secretary.
Finally, when she decided to return
to this country, they were married,
despite the disparity in their ages.
She was then fifty-three years old
and he was thirty-one. By means of
a royal grant he adopted her name.
Fourteen years later and this was
only three years ago she appeared
in the Harlem police court, a shabby,
worn woman and carrying a trumpet
through which her deaf ears could
barely catch the magistrate's ques
tions. She had procured a summons
for her husband on a charge of
drunkenness and non-support."
