Baron von Bunsen in Potsdam - 2 January, 1828

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume 1, page 302:

Letter from Bunsen to his wife, 7th January, 1828 - For the 2nd January he invited me himself, to dinner at Potsdam and to hear the singing of the Greek Church music, only the royal family and Bishop Eylert being present. On that day the King conversed with that peculiar power and just choice of words which is natural to him, whenever not overcast by native shyness. He expressed himself admirably, particularly on the subject of the Greeks, of which I will relate more.
