Michael Kelly in London - 30 May, 1808

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 239:

On the 30th May, 1808, I witnessed the retirement of my friend, Madame Storace, 
from the stage, in her favourite part of Margaretta, in "No Song, no Supper."
Colman wrote a farewell address for her, which she sang in character ; and
quitted public life, esteemed and regretted by all those who were acquainted with
her. I continued in intimate friendship with her to the day of her death.
