Barthelemy Huber et al. in Calais - 20 April, 1780
from Letter from Frances Burney to Margaret Planta, 21 April 1802, page 414:
I cannot express to you with what emotion I heard, while Dining, at Calais, a band of music, that came to the windows of the Hotel, strike up God save the King. The surprise and pleasure were of the best kind I ever experienced.
