Thomas Ryan in Boston - in the middle of the 1800's

from Recollections of an old musician, page 157:


Mr. S. Jacobsohn replaced Schultze for two seasons. He was a splendid violinist, a grand player in quartette. He could play with a tender sentiment quite surpassing all players I have ever heard, without exception; and when fully aroused he became a passionate player. Altogether he was a master artist.
