A young Second Lieutenant, Robert E. Lee was impressed by this young actress, who he felt was a great talent surpassing any he had seen. After meeting her at a ball, he wrote a friend that "she is next door to homely", saying that off-stage he could not recognize her as the same person he so admired.
Who was this actress?

Shame on you, Bobby Lee!! Washington Irving was much more diplomatic - and probably also more in the right! She looks like a pretty and sweet young woman!!
