I [...] had brought with me three or four impressions of Amico's [Viotti's] Print, & I sent one two days ago, framed, with a corresponding letter in Spanish, to poor Vaccari, who is very low in health & spirits, so much so that his dejection nearly amounts to an alienation of intellect. His undeserved expulsion from the King's service through de intrigues of rivals who are unfit even to rosin his bow, has been the cause of it: but my present and letter gave Mad. V. [Madame Vaccari, Luisa Brunetti] (who is just the same as when you knew her) sincere pleasure, & she immediately invited me to a private concert at their house given yesterday morning, where for the first time since I have been in Madrid I heard something like music. Vaccari himself through distressingly grave & silent plays as well as ever, & Mad. Vaccari's brother, [Francisco] Bruneti, is a prodigy on the Violoncello, quite equal to Duport & Crosdill & very superior to Lin[d]ley. A female pupil of Vaccari's executed one of Amico's [Viotti's] concerto's [sic] on the violin, & this was almost too much for me, those sounds not having vibrated on my ear since they last came from the "parent-lyre" --- Amico's print occupies the most distinguished place in Vaccari's drawing room, & though the poor man's finances are probably slender his habitation is excellent, being the rez de chaussée of the hotel of the Duque de Tamame's.
