from Journal entry, 13 June 1837, page 124:

13th [June, 1837].—After being busy every day, and much engaged with taking my daughters about to enjoy the splendid musical talent that now swarms in town, and after being up nearly all night through having to go to the last most glorious Philharmonic, where Thalberg almost drove me crazy with delight, I this day got on the box of the ' Light Salisbury' and went down to Longparish.
