from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 98:

Ever warm and active, my dear Stephen introduced me the next day to the British Consul, and the Messrs. Darby, eminent mercantile men, residing -at Leghorn, brothers of Mrs. Robinson, the beautiful Perdita ; and two Scotch families, the Grants and Frazers, patronized me, and I had a crowded concert room, the nett produce, eighty zecchinos ; and above all, to me, my singing was very much approved.
