Peter Hawker in London, England - 10 April, 1848

from Journal entry, 10 April 1848, page 287:

A very thin Philharmonic this evening, owing to the fear of many ladies to venture out;* but a good concert, and a most inspiring effect produced by the appropriate performance of 'God save the Queen' by full chorus and the best orchestra in the world.
