Michael Kelly in Drury Lane - 1802

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, pages 167-168:

Mrs. Billington returned to England this season, after an absence of several 
years, and was engaged at Drury Lane and Covent Garden, to perform a certain
number of nights at each theatre. At both she appeared in Mandane, in
"Artaxerxes;" she went through all her operatical characters, in all of which I
performed with her. She was received with rapturous applause, and on each night
drew crowded houses.
