Maude V. White in England - the 1880's

from Friends and Memories, page 303:

Another friend whom I often saw during my Albion Street days was the late Lady Sandhurst, who asked me to give her piano lessons. She was such a dear! I remember once teaching her a fugue and saying to her - “Look here, the way you play this fugue reminds me of a giddy old maid; it really isn’t staccato from beginning to end.”
