    This paper reconstructs the story of a so far unknown manuscript, a handwritten, personal account detailing a 1927 journey to the United States and Canada with the primary purpose of selling Hungarian wine as part of a more extensive international venture. The article introduces the research that led to the identification of the writer of the manuscript ‚Äďwritten on sheets of paper from a Canadian hotel ‚Äď and outlines the background of a fascinating business project, thereby positioning the text not only as a unique example to be studied with the tools of microhistory but also placing it in the broader, transatlantic historical and political environment of the time. The text is also studied and presented as a piece of travel writing that provides unique insights into Hungarian perceptions of North America in the 1920s and the Hungarian images of Canada and the United States

    The première of Meyerbeer\''s Le Prophète in the Hungarian National Theatre on June 12th 1850 was an event of unprecedented importance in the short history of professional opera in the Hungarian language. In my paper I am going to demonstrate the role of the orchestra in the success of this work. I shall combine this with the presentation of other outstanding aspects of the performance so that we shall be able to fairly judge the orchestra\''s contribution to the success
