Mr Banks in Liverpool - January, 1856

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , pages 359-360:

Mr. Banks, who came to inquire about the programme for his coming concert, told me he had heard Jenny Lind in the 'Messiah' at Liverpool; according to him she has fallen off, and the applause, though still great, was not to be compared with the enthusiasm of former days.
