Maude V. White in a trip from Vienna to Perth Hungary - in the beginning of the 1880's
from Friends and Memories, page 269:
A band of black-eyed gipsies was fiddling on the platform as we arrived at one of the desolate little country stations at which the train stops before reaching Pesth. They were wild, unkempt creatures, dark as Indians, and played with the same astonishing fire as those I had heard in Vienna, and though their instruments were certainly nothing to boast of, it was extraordinary what they were able to get out of them !
