Edited to add the composer is Domenico Corri

I got one  ;D The son of my 4x GG Grandfather....
He was a music teacher in England that 'eloped' with his very young student. They were eventually caught and he absconded to USA. Went to the trouble of changing his name to Arthur Clifton, presumably to avoid his pursuers and had a 'bounty' on his head of 100 pounds :-X

I beg you will inform the Gentlemen of the Philharmonic Society that I withdraw myself as a Member from
that Society; Wishing them
all, Health and Prosperity
December 12, 1816
It was moved by Mr. Webbe and seconded by Mr. Neate that 'This Society with feelings of the utmost
indignation of the discovery that Mr P. A. Corri has been guilty of atrocious conduct which [makes] him at
ce a disgrace to his profession, and to Society at large, anxiously hasten to express their horror of having
associated with such a man, and do formally expel him from their Body for ever.' [Read to the members of
the Philharmonic at General Meeting: Janua
ry 15, 1817; Entered into minutes.]
Advertisement in
The Euterpiad, 1822
Whereas, Philip Anthony Corri, musical composer and teacher, left this country about five years ago for
New York, and his personal abode is desired to be k
nown to the advertiser, but not for any hostile purpose,
this is to give notice whoever will, within six months from this date, furnish satisfaction to Mr. Harmer,
solicitor, Hatton Garden, of the present residence of the said Mr. Corri, so that an intervi
ew may be
obtained with him, shall be paid a reward of 100.
N.B. It has been reported that the above
named P. A. Corri, after his arrival at New York, proceeded to
Philadelphia, thence to Baltimore and there married a Quaker lady. It has also been asserted
that he is
returned to England. The said P. A. Corri has a sharp, Italian visage, sallow complexion, black curly hair,
black eyes, and is bald on the crown of the head. He is forty years of age, five feet eight inches high, and
has a soft voice and a gent
lemanly manner. London, June 17, 1822.

Hello chinapaddy! Just wanted to add that Domenico Corri is also my 4x great grandfather! Would love to chat it that's possible on here?

Can anyone read what the first line under  'slight defects but not sufficient to cause rejection' says? I can see that beneath the first line it says undescended left testicle.
If anyone can access the original and see what it says diagonally across the vision section (begins with S)
 For context in 1911 census he was recorded as feeble minded from birth.
 Many thanks!

Sorry I realise I have cropped out the word feeble. It says feeble...from birth

Can anyone read this name? I think it is a man but it could be a woman as it is a marriage witness.
Thank you

Can anyone tell what this street name is? Before and after this address they lived in Newington and Lambeth respectively so I'm guessing it is around this area, it is on a school admission form for Stockwell College.

Thanks in advance

Wonderful thank you both, I didn't realise a MID could be for general good service. I know that he worked on various submarine depot ships as I have gone through every ship on his naval record!
