William Gardiner in Leicester - 20 January, 1837, in the morning

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, pages 729-730:

On Friday, January 20, 1837, my father (as his custom was) took up his violoncello soon after breakfast, and in his 94th year played that beautiful air of Shields's, 'See the rosy morn appearing,' with a firmness and truth of tone, not common to persons of his age. A few days after he was attacked by that direful complaint, the Influenza, and on the following Friday expired.
