Wodzinska Family in Dresden - September, 1835

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, page 128:

[Letter from Maria Wodzinska to Frydryk Chopin in Paris]

Felix repeatedly asked me to play that Waltz (the last thing you played and gave to us). They enjoyed listening as I enjoyed playing, for it brought back the 'brother' who had just left.
