Letter from Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy to the Royal Academy of Music, 11 April 1843. Written from Leipzig.


‘Sir, I beg to offer my best and most heartfelt thanks to the Committee of Management of the Royal Academy of Music for the honor [sic] they have conferred upon me by placing my name on the list of their Honorary Members. I feel truly proud in belonging to an Institution which has promoted the cause of music in your country so essentially, and which counts among its members and even its pupils some of those men, who are an ornament to their art, a toast to their country and for whom I shall always feel the highest regard. I thankfully accept the honor which has been conferred upon me and beg you will express to the Committee the feelings of gratitude with which I do so. I have the honor to remain Sir your obedient servant’
