Lowell Mason in Leipzig - in the beginning of 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 51:

We heard her in Leipzig often, and we may venture to assure those who have been enraptured with Jenny Lind, that they will not be disappointed in Mad. Sontag. I know not whether she possesses the versatility of talent of Jenny Lind; but whether she has equal power to please a popular audience with “John Anderson,” or “Cornin’ through the rye,” or not, it is sure that the appreciator of perfection in the art of song must be fully satisfied with Mad. Sontag.
