Queen Victoria et al. in London - April, 1848

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, page 177:

Extract from a Contemporary Notice, Monday morning: 30th April; Totteridge - Yesterday we dined at the Palace—the dinner-party and no one else,—heard in the evening a set of German singers and musicians, part of a company who will perform German operas, to which I look forward with great pleasure. To-morrow we are to go to the Queen's Concert—and those not included in the invitation will enjoy the first German opera, for which we have taken a box, as in duty bound.
