Peter Hawker in Winchester - 16 September, 1837

from Journal entry, 16 September 1837, page 131:

An exquisite musical treat. Thalberg at Winchester, with Mori, Albertazzi, and others. Busy in assisting about the concert, but unfortunately could not get either Mori or Thalberg to come home with me, as the one was obliged to post all night for Birmingham, and the other was obliged to proceed to London the moment he had finished his most exquisitely splendid performance. It seemed like a romance to have such gods among the Hampshire hogs.
