from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her son-in-law John Battersby-Harford, 26 June 1851, page 144:

Our Tuesday evenings have answered most thoroughly, and enabled us satisfactorily to receive a great number of foreigners and show them something of London society. Last Tuesday among others the Duke of Wellington came, and was very amiable, and Ernest sang to him the Bl├╝cher-song, which he remembered to have heard.
