My first duty was to call on my friend, Capelmeister Carl Reinecke [...] I found him at half-past eight busy giving a pianoforte lesson, and, after the usual greetings, we made an appointment for eleven o’clock. [...] I am anxious to get back to my hotel to receive the Capelmeister, and long to be directed to some of the musical associations of Leipzig, and especially to those connected with its former illus­trious residents, John Sebastian Bach and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Like all other German musicians who had made appointments with me, Herr Reinecke kept his time exactly. [...]

During my expedition Herr Reinecke introduced me to Dr. Papperitz, the organist of the great organ in the Church of S. Nicholas, who was good enough to make an ap­pointment with me for the following day, to hear and play that immense instrument. Among the students were two fine-looking negroes (from America I believe), and also the Rev. F. Scotson Clark, Mus. Bac. Oxon., who, with others from England, was going through the courses of harmony and other instruction imparted by the different masters of the Academy.
