J. K. Mackenzie - 22 August, 1834

from Letter from Lieut. J. K. Mackenzie to his mother, 22 August 1834:

My dear Mother, …While I am writing our band is playing quite close to my window, they are very much improved, and are now a very good band, they play the Edinburgh waltz quite beautifully, but I think are too fond of Italian music.
