With Glee…

05.04.1879 WORCESTER GLEE CLUB. The advent of April denotes the end of the season of the glee clubs, and on Tuesday night last was the closing performance at the Crown Hotel, when the members of the above old-established club turned out in such numbers that the large room was crowded, and the side room was also occupied. During the evening Mr. T. M. Hopkins in a few sentences asked those present to drink to “The health of the Mayor,” who was in the room, and Mr. Holland responded. He then asked the company to drink to the health of Mr. Forsyth, sculptor, who had presented the club with a bust of the late Mr. Allen Wheeler, a gentleman who when alive took a great interest in the club. Mr. Forsyth shortly replied. [Worcestershire Chronicle] Allen Wheeler, 1803-1876, of 32 York Place, Tything of Whistones, surgeon and eldest son of the Rev. Allen Wheeler, Minor Canon of the Cathedral 1799-1851 and Precentor 1820-1851.
