Frances Calvert in Leiden - 14 September, 1817
from Journal entry, 14 September 1817, pages 303–304:
We were enchanted with the organ here; its powers are really beyond description. The man played a battle and a storm, and really I could have imagined I heard the cannon roar. As to the thunder it was quite terrific.
