Charles C.F. Greville et al. in Belvoir Castle, Leicestershire - between 3 January, 1834 and 7 January, 1834

from Journal entry, 7 January 1834, pages 46–47:

After many years of delay, I am here since the 3rd, to assist at the celebration of the Duke of Rutland’s birthday. The party is very large […] In the morning we are roused by the strains of martial music, and the band (of his regiment of militia) marches round the terrace, awakening or quickening the guests with lively airs […] in the evening some play at whist or amuse themselves as they please, and some walk about the staircases and corridors to hear the band, which plays the whole evening in the hall.
