Peter Hawker et al. in Hanover Square Rooms, London - 10 July, 1843, at night

from Journal entry, 10 July 1843, pages 235–236:

In Hanover Square Rooms at half-past seven. Queen came at half-past eight; close to her all the evening. Her first turn at Philharmonic, and perhaps her last, as, in consequence of that dry mathematician, old Spohr, having the command, we had all noise and no melody.
