Commentary:

Bohemia 2/6/1850 published news that Julius Schulhoff on 30th May had played for the second time in a soirée for Her Majesty the Empress [almost certainly Marie Anne, wife of Ferdinand who abdicated in 1848 and subsequently resided in Prague]. No details of the occasion were related, except that at the end of the soirée Schulhoff ‘was presented with a very valuable golden tobacco-box by Her Majesty.’ Schulhoff evidently remained in Prague for the duration of the summer. Bohemia 13/10/1850 published news that following a long stay in his home city he was today about to embark upon a long concert tour of north Germany and of Russia. His first destination was noted to be Leipzig.
