King George III in London - 1787

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, pages 6-7:

[Neale's] celebrity for playing Correlli's and Geminiani's music was so great that, singular to say, in the year 1787 he was commanded by King George III. to go to London, where he had the honour of performing before His Majesty several times, and His Majesty expressed the greatest approbation of his extraordinary powers.
