In other words the accent, if not the language, of our speech is echoed by those addressed. Such, at least, is the rule. With respect to literal echoes we get back, in both word and tone, exactly what we give. The beautiful nymph in our picture is a charming personification of Echo:- “Sweetest Echo, sweetest nymph that liv’st unseen Within thy airy shell, By slow Meander’s margent green And in the violet-embroidered vale.” She is prepared to answer sweetly the voices that reach her ear. Pity that harsh, discordant notes should ever have to issue from those sweet lips! The picture is poetic in conception and masterly in design. Hermann Koch is a German artist, Munich.”
