Thomas Ryan in Sydney - the 1880's

from Recollections of an old musician, page 231:

 

 

 

To return to our travels, we gave a farewell concert at Sydney which was very gratifying. The music-lovers had decorated the stage with flowers and large English and American flags. Enthusiasm quite reached fever-heat when, at the right moment, a lady came on the stage and handed me, as conductor of the Club, two very beautiful flags, English and American, made of satin, and fully three feet long, with an inscription in silver letters wishing us all “ good luck.”
