[T]he Cambrian Orpheus, Randall of Wrexham, became my guest. He staid near three weeks […] and from breakfast till dinner I had a constant succession of company to listen to the enchantments of the pedal harp, while musical parties, either at home or abroad, engrossed every evening.

Mr Saville took the whole management of the benefit-concert, which he had planned for Mr Randall, and spared no fatigue, no exertion, for the interest of his friend. Considering the luckless occurrence that week, of three smart weddings in the environs, detaining families who would otherwise have been there, the room was better filled than we expected. With breathless attention, succeeded by. loud applause, the audience listened to lyric excellence, unrivalled surely in brilliant execution, and tasteful variation. My description of his powers in the Chester paper last week, you probably saw.
