At nine o'clock on the morning of the jubilee, the Chief Burgomaster of the Austrian capital (like Berlin, Vienna has two Mayors) waited upon Johann Strauss, at the latter's residence in the Igelgasse, to offer him the municipality's congratulations and present him with the freedom of the city. A host of theatrical deputations followed, bearing thank-offerings to the "Waltz-King," and presently his only surviving brother, Edward — for Joseph Strauss, a scarcely less admirable conductor than Johann, drowned himself in the Danube a few years ago, in consequence of a love disappointment — appeared with the entire personnel of his orchestra, and serenaded the hero of the day.
