Frances von Bunsen in Heidelberg - 20 November, 1859

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her husband, 21 Nov. 1859, page 249:

Dearest Theodora was an example in keeping-up, and not melting, and in every way exerting to make the last hours of being together bright instead of gloomy. How soothing and elevating it was to hear the four daughters with August sing through the musical service for Good Friday as arranged by Neukomm!
