Charles C.F. Greville - mid January, 1835, at night

from Journal entry, 15 January 1835, page 197:

Theodore Hook, whom I met at dinner the other day […] improvised in a wonderful way that evening; he sang a song, the burthen of which was ‘Good Night,’ inimitably good, and which might have been written down.
