For some years after she left the stage, Mrs. Siddons still continued occasionally to delight her friends by her reading. She was very handsome, but had a heavy figure. Her conception of the character of Rosalind failed from the entire want of the playfulness which belongs to it. 

Mrs. Jordan’s failure in the same character was from the contrary error of making Rosalind a vulgar romp, instead of either a lady or a princess; and the cuckoo song she introduced, in spite of her silver tones, was what Rosalind could never have sung. I saw both these celebrated actresses in this pretty but difficult character, which requires to be acted by a lady born, to give it ease and playfulness, without a particle of stiffness or vulgarity.
