Lady Dysart et al. in London - early February, the 1730's

from The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs. Delany, Series 1, Volume 2, page 35:

Letter from Mrs. Pendarves to Mrs. Ann Granville.

13th Feb. 1738-9.

I was at the oratorio last Saturday with Lady Dysart, and (oh wonderful) Lord Carteret: he met with two patriot ladies that took up his attention more than the music, but it was triumph enough to get him there, and what will more increase your wonder, he treated his ladies with their tickets!
