Of Prinoess Paulino Borghese, she whose charms Canova is supposed to have immortalized in his Venus Victrix, Mr. Augustus J. O. Hare, in bis "The Story of My Life," relates this anecdote, told him by Lady Ruthven: She nsed, when at Rome, to go to "la toilette des pieds" of Pauline Borghese. Regalar invitations were issued for it. When the gnests arrived, they found the princess, supremely lovely, with her beautiful little white feet exposed upon a velvet cushion. Then two or three raaids came in and touched the feet with a sponge and dusted them with a little powder - "c'etait la toilette des pieds." The Duke of Hamilton used to take up one of the little feet and put it inside his Waistcoat "like a little bird. "
