As soon as the concert was over, they hurried into a chaise and arrived at Derby just in time for her first song, at the church, in the morning. I [William Gardiner] was in the director's pew; and Lord George Cavendish, who was expressing regret at the loss of Miss Stephens, in a conversation with the Duke of Devonshire, asked my opinion of Mrs. Salmon as a singer. I said, " My lord, I came with an expectation of being much gratified by your musical treat, but am not at all disappointed at the change ; you promised me silver, but unexpectedly give me gold." This observation reconciled them, and they began to listen in something like good humour.

Though she had travelled all night, she sang exquisitely, and was applauded through the whole of the four days.
