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 37:

I re-entered Italy in the following autumn, and landing at Leghorn from Genoa, found an opera in that town, but it was very indifferent, with Porri for first man, Scovelli, a bad tenor, whom I had left in England, and a woman not worth remembering.
