03Aug1881, A Concert For Me

LONDON, August 3rd, 1881.
—The remarkable day of my first (and last) concert: got up for me by Mazy [FN: I.e. Mary Gladstone.] and Spencer. Free Forester quartetts and quintettes (Spencer, Edward, Messrs. Ratliff, Bray, and Muir Mackenzie), a little violin and p.f. pair of Polish sisters called Bulewski, an American Miss Bube: brothers also each sang a solo and Mazy played. Company rather dowdy, but delighted.
