Lowell Mason in Düsseldorf - 2 August, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, pages 181-2:

The competition now commenced between those societies which came from towns containing between three and ten thousand inhabitants, and which, therefore, belonged to the second class. There were five of these societies, each of which sang two songs. The performances were generally better than those of the third class (which sang on the first day), and more equal; but yet it was not difficult to decide which society in this second class would take the first prize.
