The first time Eliza sung Philip to sleep, he was 4 days old. He hadn’t stopped crying in a day, she couldn’t figure out what was wrong, and Alexander was no help. She hadn’t slept for days, but she stayed up with him every minuet of his relentless sobbing. Finally she thought of what her mom, and later Angelica, did to calm her when she was upset. They would sing. So Eliza sang her favorite song (a beautiful french lullaby) to him. He was asleep within the minute.
The last time Eliza sang Philip to sleep he was 19 years old.
