Frances Calvert in Royal Pavilion, Brighton - July, 1813, at night
from Journal entry, July 1813, page 204:
The only ladies besides myself at the Pavilion were Lady Charles Somerset, and her daughter, Mrs. Hervey Aston (a sister of Lady Hertford’s), and her daughter, Lady Burrell, (a very pleasing woman, natural daughter to Lord Egremont,) Lady Sarah Bailey, a Mrs. Paulet, wife to a son of Lord Paulet’s in the Navy, Catalani, and Madame Bianchi were there. I forgot also the Countess Lieven, the Russian Ambassadress. She played on the pianoforte, which she does very finely, principally voluntaries. She played the march the Russians march to battle with; it is beautiful.
