Sadak & Kalasrade

Sadak & Kalasrade 31.7.1797 at Sadler's Wells
Based on a story in Sir Charles Morell's Tales of the Genii 1784 this was a "new grand serio-comic pantomime" with tightrope walking, a song "A fig for invasion", a palace on fire, an eastern harem, an Evolution ballet, full title "Sadak & Kalasrade or the Waters of Oblivion" at Sadlers Wells 1797-99, revived in 1814 and 1840 (Victoria Theatre) and 1872 (mentioning playwright Mary Russell Mitford DNB 1787-1855) each time advertised as "new"


Sadlers 19.11.1799 at Nicholson's lecture / 14.1.1800 Sadler at Nicholson's / 29.7.1835 M T Sadler dies
James Sadler DNB 1753-1828 balloonist and chemist was a likely contact of William Nicholson's DNB 1753-1815. His son John 1779-1838 may have been included in the plural at the lecture. Michael Thomas Sadler DNB 1780-1835 was certainly the 1835 entry, Godwin didn't record having met him but read him in 1829.

HCR diary 8.12.1824 at Aders "Jameson, Salomon and a Mr Faber there"

Salomon, Johann Peter

In Godwin's 1796 list for 1794 but this entry not coded to his person record in GD website, nor is the entry of 7.4.1796 Salomon's concert. The only name in the 1796 list to have been both underlined and crossed out (except for Wolcot in whose case it was because Godwin moved him from 1787 to 1792 where he was still underlined and not crossed out). Salomon also appeared in the 1794 version of the 1796 list but not then underlined

Salvo & Fraser

7.5.1807 dine at Philips's, w. Salvo, Fraser
Travels in the year 1806 from Italy to England &c by the marchese di Salvo translated by W Fraser printed for Richard Phillips. Sometimes called Carlo, he seems to have been Vincenze Salvo di Petraganzili, born 1787 and died Paris 22.10.1860. He married Lucy Anne Mary Caroline Claxton after 1841 but before 27.10.1847 when her mother Lucy Shuckburgh made her will (PCC 26.8.1851). As well as his gallant adventure helping the escape of Mrs Spencer Smith from the French police, he was known for some musical compositions. Fraser not only…
