The Arnims et al. in London - April, 1845

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, page 82:

An extract from a Contemporary Notice, 6th April, 1845 - Besides all the engagements mentioned, I have had daily sight-seeing with the Arnims, and very glad have I been both of their company and of the sights. They are delightful people, and know how to enjoy everything. Our music was fine on Friday evening ; Hausmann played on the violoncello exquisitely; Frances accompanied at sight, and was much praised by Neukomm ; then Mrs. Sartoris (Adelaide Kemble) sang, as if inspired, a Scottish ballad—poetry, melody, expression, all wonderful.
