The musicians were a splendid set. He had Bottesini, the Paganini of the contrabass, and Koenig, the great cornetist of the day, who could play with wonderful expression, his rendition of the Prima Donna Waltz being really an artistic marvel.

Then there was the necromantic flautist, Reichardt, the very fine clarinetist, Wuille, and an ophicleide- player, Mr. Hughes, who drew out of his instrument a wonderfully soft, large, and mellow tone, and played with great execution.
