Frances Calvert in Royal Pavilion, Brighton - between early August, 1804, night and mid September, 1804, night
from Journal, 1804, page 16:
Shortly after the beginning of August I went on a visit to my sister at Brighton, taking Isabella and Edmond [her children] with me. There I remained nearly six weeks. During that time I was invited six or seven times to the Pavilion (the Prince of Wales). One of the nights there was a very pleasant ball; the other nights his band played. It is a prodigious fine band, as he has taken a great deal of pains with them, being passionately fond of music. He sung two nights himself, which he does very agreeably.
