Eliza Ripley comments on several Strakosch and (William) Wallace works in her Social Life in Old New Orleans (1912) (pp.148–149 or so) (republished in 1999 and previewable @ Google Books; if the original can be scanned in (ah, it has indeed been - see here) it would be good to have, I think!). She says briefly "and "Flirtation Polka," to Mme. Lavillebeuvre, who was a delightful pianist and merited something more inspiring than that" - Schissel
