Lowell Mason in Rossplatz, Leipzig - early May, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 122:

As we proceed to Rossplatz, we come to a multitude of eating, and drinking “Restauration” places. As you pass by them you hear music; look in, and you will see women harping upon their harps, and men sitting at tables with beer-glasses before them, some drinking, some eating, and all talking and smoking.
