in Paris - the 1830's

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860), page 60:

And he [Richard Wagner] felt evidently at home with us. He came often to the Rue Lafitte. Heller improvised, I played, or we played duets, and I remember that one evening when I had played to them Schumann's ' Carneval,' then quite new, we three indited a letter of thanks to the composer, which letter I saw more than forty years later in the hands of his widow.
