Lady Herschel et al. in London - 5 May, 1847

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her mother, Mrs Waddington, 6 May 1847, page 98:

Yesterday Mendelssohn again played to us in the afternoon, and we invited a small number of people who thought themselves very happy to hear him—including Lady Herschel and her beautiful daughter. I have again enjoyed the Ancient Concert by Prince Albert’s kindness.
