Evidence

From Hallam Tennyson"s account of a voyage on the Pembroke Castle (September 1883): "[18 September] In response to an invitation from the hospitable Sir Donald [Currie] the Royalties came to luncheon on board [...] In the small smoking room after luncheon my father, at the request of the Princess of Wales, read ""The Bugle Song"" and ""The Grandmother."" The Czarina paid him some very pretty compliment, and he, being very short-sighted, and taking her for a Maid of Honour, patted her on the shoulder and said, ""Thank you, my dear."""
