If the interest in Mademoiselle Lind's debut could have been heightened, I should have said that it was increased by the first appearance of the celebrated German bass singer, Staudigl, on the Italian boards, in his famous part of Bertram. His success in this character (for which indeed he had been expressly engaged) was as great as it was merited, although his pronunciation of the Italian language was defective. He was proclaimed the Bertram of the Italian stage, as he had been of the German, Still it was impossible for him to occupy his merited position in the operatic "talk" of the day, when the public mind was wholly and exclusively absorbed by one object — Jenny Lind.
