William Beatty-Kingston in London

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 194:

From that moment — although I only saw and heard him [Mendelssohn] once again, in the organ-loft of St. Paul's, when the rapidity of his pedal-playing well-nigh unsettled my reason — he became my idol and ideal, and remained so for years. It is certainly not too much to say that I worshipped him dans mon for intérieur with all the ardour that was in me.
