Frances Calvert in Geneva, Switzerland - late July, 1817

from Journal entry, July 1817, page 294:

[Editor’s note: the Stronges had all the Gunn family to dinner, and many more in the evening]

The Miss Gunns sang divinely; they have wonderful talents and are very agreeable, but rather too dashing for my taste.
