Frances Calvert et al. in London - 22 June, 1814, at night

from Journal entry, 22 June 1814, page 228:

Mr. C[alvert] and I dined at Mr. Robinson’s and met Lord and Lady Kingston, Lord and Lady Gage, Lord and Lady Ashbrook, Lord Kilworth and Lord Clifden. In the evening came Lord Mount Cashel and his beautiful daughter Lady Jane Moore. Lady Ashbrook played on the harp. I never heard anyone play so delightfully as she does, the sounds she brings out are quite divine.
