Charles Halle - December, 1855

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 356:

Finished reading Marschner's ' Vampire.' The work contains many beauties, and exceeds in true worth many of Meyerbeer's operas which enjoy such a far greater celebrity. It is to be regretted that so many of the incidents seem, copied from the 'Freischutz.'
