London roastbeef
During his stay in England, (April 20 – November 23) Chopin wrote to Wojciech Grzymała: "It wasn’t even my laziness, but time wasted on nothing which was the cause of lack of letter from me. I can’t get up before eight. My Italian, who takes care about himself and about his bills, wastes time in the morning, and after 10.00 some activities start which do not bring any money. At about 1 there are several lessons. I can’t walk or move, so I don’t care about my matters, but I can see that things are getting done themselves and if the season lasted 6 months, then I would earn some money. Until now I still don’t know anything. Only the day after tomorrow the duchess Sutherland will introduce me to the queen. The queen visits her in gratiam [at the ceremony] of baptism. […] I was offered the philharmonic to perform, but I don’t want to because it would be with the orchestra. I was there, I observed. […] Their orchestra is like a roastbeef, or a soup from a turtle, strong, fat, but nothing more."

Daughter of Solange
Chopin receives a letter from Solange Clésinger: "I would like to share my happiness […] I have a daughter as big as the previous was small." She asks Chopin to motivate Clésinger, her husband, to try his forces in London, where "he might sell the dowry".
In five months Auguste Clésinger will be the one to take the death mask of Chopin, he will be also the sculptor who produced the monument on the Père-Lachaise cemetery.
