Henry Bunsen et al. in Mannheim - late May, 1858

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her daughter Emilia, 25 May 1858, page 229:

We went to the Opera at Mannheim, which was the Zauberflöte, and most thoroughly enjoyed it. I had long planned to go with Matilda and Henry, but was half frightened when your Father expressed the desire to go too—not knowing whether it might not cause attacks which would have made pleasure impossible: but we drove the whole way in a carriage, had tea at the Pfälzerhof, were fetched from the theatre at once by the carriage in which we drove home, and all answered entirely.
