In The Glasgow Herald, on Monday the 7th of May, 1855, page 5, under ‘Popular Entertainments’:


“The musical dilettanti of Glasgow will have an opportunity on Wednesday first of hearing some excellent music well performed at Messrs. Thomson’s Saloon, 227 Sauchiehall Street, on which evening Mr. Henri de Valadares will give his first Soiree Musicale in Glasgow. This artist, who is a violinist of great ability, formed one of the orchestra during the late opera season, and we are certain that all who may attend his concert will be satisfied with what he has provided for their entertainment.”
