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
among his fair countrywomen to see and do
honor I am sure he could not say them nay.
