Frances Calvert - February, 1807, at night

from Journal entry, February 1807, page 70:

[Editor’s note: One evening in February Mrs. Knox, Mrs. Calvert, and Miss Acklom went to the Opera together, escorted by Mr. Charles Calvert and Lord Kinnoull] 

Catalani sang; she certainly has great powers of voice, but somehow, I do not extravagantly admire her.
