Michael Kelly in Augsburg - 1787
from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 279:
We arrived at Augsbourg early in the morning, and intended to pass the day there. There seemed to be a swarm of Israelites in this old town, which is renowned for wig-makers, pits, water-works, and dancing ladies, who are by no means scrupulous on the point of exhibiting their legs. It being Sunday, we did not visit their sulphureous water-works, but looked in at one of the balls which are given every Sunday evening, where were some very prettily-dressed servant girls, labouring assiduously at the dance, accompanied by a dulcimer, a violin, pipe, and tabor.
