NOTES AND QUERIES.

IT B. FARNIE (civ. 153).—I often assisted
**•% Mr. Farnie by making " rough "
English translations of French operetta
libretti which he adapted for the English
stage from the year 1884, and he frequently
told me that he was born on the same day as
his favourite composer, Jacques Offenbach,
June 21 1819. Famie, it must be confessed,
had only a slight knowledge of the French
language.
