Lowell Mason in Düsseldorf - early August, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 192:

Very near to this, in point of merit, was the Polyhymnia of Cologne. It may be mentioned here that there is a society in Cologne which is very celebrated for the perfection of its performances. This society has taken the first prize for several years, but voluntarily gave way this year, or retired from the contest, so that others might have the opportunity of winning.
