Baron von Bunsen in London - March, 1839

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume 1, page 513:

Letter from Bunsen to his wife - I came home in time for the dinner at the Duke of Cambridge's. The Duchess of Gloucester was there,—most kind and gracious—full of enquiries after you and mamma. At ten, the Duke retired, to play a quartett with three violinists who can only come on a Sunday evening. I heard this still going on when I retired, and it is said he keeps it up till two o'clock.
