Samuel Bentham in Mittau, Courland - 16 December, 1779

from Letter from Samuel Bentham to his brother, Jeremy Bentham, 12-19 December 1779, page 369:

Mr. Bull took me home in his carriage and brought me again at five o’clock to the concert. The concert was again most excellent, that is the execution was very great, but the pieces were not so much to my taste as the first of the Adagios at the former concert, so that I kept myself within the bounds of decency and indeed was talking almost the whole time.
