Description

Letter signed by the composer and conductor Julius Benedict to a Lady Sydney, recommending a German professor based in Brighton.

Inscription

2 Manchester Square
4 Nov. 1864

Dear Lady Sydney

In reply to your kind note I bet to recommend a very clever and painstaking German Lady Professor at Brighton Fraulein Mehlhorn 5 Hampton Place - or (should she have changed her address) at Potts' Music Warehouse (formerly Wright's)

[overleaf] Nearly all the best London Professors - such as Frederic Lablache, Ciabatta, Garcia attend also at Brighton, should Fraulein Mehlhorn not give satisfactions, and I know two or three first rate Ladies - teachers of singing who have private pupils or schools there.

I am

Dear Lady Sydney

yours truly

Julius Benedict
