           The Ladies After Paul Morphy.
To the Editor of the New-York Times :
      Would you  not oblige  a  great many ladies by
inviting Mr. Paul Morphy to give a chess matinée,
where  they could witness his method of playing the
Royal game,  and make  his  acquaintance on equal
terms with  our gentlemen  friends.   If Mr. Morphy
had  the  slightest  idea  of  the anxiety  that prevails
among  his  fair countrywomen  to see  and  do him
honor I am sure he could not say them nay.
