Another incident, haud obliviscari took place that evening. He [Mendelsohnn] made me play a Bach prelude to him, with cold perspiration running down my back and in such an agony of nervousness as I have never since been called upon to fight against — I was only nine years old and extremely sensitive — and, when my terrible ordeal had come to an end, patted my head, kissed me between the eyes, and said: "Little fellow, you were born a musician, and will play the piano some day." I doubt whether that night there was another so happy and proud a boy as I within the confines of Her Most Gracious Majesty's realms.
