Abstract:

Thanking him [in 1831] for his kindnesses to Mendelssohn and for performing his music, apologizing for not keeping his promise regarding a tenor duet and writing out a canon for two violas, saying he likes Rome but not especially the Italians, expressing regret that since he arrived in Italy he found "neither a good theatre, nor an orchestra, nor even a single clever professor," saying he never imagined a country "where there could be so little musical sense or interest in it" as there is in Italy, mentioning Klingemann, Neate, Horsley, Kemble, and Cartwright; and [in 1839] introducing "my very particular friend Mr. [Ferdinand] David, who visits England for the first time."
