Mary Delany in Covent Garden - 8 January, 1737

from Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany: with interesting Reminiscences of King George the Third and Queen Charlotte, page 587:

I was this morning regaled with Mr. Handel's new opera called Arminius, it was rehearsed at Covent Garden; I think it as fine a one as any he has made, as I hope you will, 'tis to be acted next Wednesday. From the rehearsal I came home with my neighbour Granville!
