For the next three months I studied horn-blowing. I did not like my teacher and hated to hear him always saying that the horn was more like the human voice than any other instrument. But he was clever, and I worked hard without a word of complaint. At last 1 asked him if he thought I could play something in private to a friend.

“Well, Colonel," he said, “I’ll tell you the truth: it would be beyond your ability. You haven’t the lip for it. You blow too hard, and it spoils the impression. What were you thinking of playing to your friend?”

"Something that you must teach me, Schubert's serenade." He stared at me, and shook his head. “It isn’t written for the instrument, sir," he said, “you’ll never play it." But 1 insisted. “The first time I play it through1 without a mistake, I’ll give you five pounds," I said. So the man gave in.
