Baron von Bunsen et al. in Heidelberg - 11 January, 1856

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her daugher Emilia, 12 Jan. 1856, page 196:

Last night we had a French vaudeville, according to a plan long laid by Theodore, followed by German charades, then supper, then music - pianoforte and violoncello, and then a most animated dance, whcih concluded all with the greatest spirit, and before twelve the house was cleared. I was in total ignorance to the last of what was going to be, so that Papa and I shared the surprise of the other spectators.
