Richard Edgcumbe in Lyon - in the middle of 1784

from Musical Reminiscences: Containing an Account of Italian Opera in England, From 1773. The Fourth Edition, Continued to the Present Time, and Including The Festival in Westminster Abbey., page 36:

She [Madlle. Saint-Huberti] was a fine actress, and in her singing a little less violent and extravagant than the generality of French singers, but still had too much of the national style. I heard her once more in private many years after, in England, when she was become Comtesse d’Entragues, and an émigrée. Her voice, then moderated to the room, and probably weakened by age, was far from disagreeable, and she was a very good musician.
