From the Reading Journal, #10 (Bitter Edition)

I was not familiar with the opera, but remembered Maclintick and Gossage having a music critics’ argument about Smetana at Mrs Foxe’s party for Moreland’s symphony. No recollection remained of the motif of their dispute, though no doubt, like all musical differences of opinion, feelings had been bitter when aroused.

– from The Military Philosophers by Anthony Powell, ninth book in the series A Dance to the Music of Time.
