On the following day I was a guest at the annual dinner of the ship-owners of Hamburg, Hull, and Grimsby. On these occasions, after the third course, the toasts and speeches are given out between the succeeding courses ; the favourite toasts are responded to musically in a manner, I must own, very superior to our “ Hip, hip, hurrah,” and “ For he’s a jolly good fellow.” All the guests sang in perfect time and tune, most of them being, as I ascertained, members of various choral and other associations for the practice of vocal part music.
