Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1838

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 247:

how are they to get ways and means when their artistic means and ways are so slender? As in the case of H.'s son. Heaven keep our boy from becoming such a nullity, and trading on his father's name! The poor fellow gave a concert, and he excited nought but compassion.
