12 August 1834
The wandering piper performed last evening, for the first time in this city, in the saloon of the Albion Hotel. The audience was very respectable and appeared well pleased with the performance. The piper played for the space of two hours. The airs were mostly Irish and Scotch, the melody of which he appeared to feel very much. The wandering piper is thin, and tall of stature, appearing to be between 40 and 45 years of age, with features of the highland caste, and a strong Scotch accent. It is difficult however, to speak of his features, as he wore green glasses which have the effect of producing some alteration in the appearance of the face.
The wandering piper will repeat his performance this evening, when the public will have the opportunity of judging for themselves.
