Peter Hawker in Longparish House, Longparish, Hampshire - 4 January, 1838, at night

from Journal entry, 4 January 1838, page 135:

Obliged to be up two hours before daylight, and in Winchester before nine o'clock this morning, […] By this sudden call to court I lost all my morning's music with Langstaff, who came over again, and I only got home just in time to dress for my dinner party. Up till two in the morning, with music, singing, fun, and dancing, so that my incessant excitement continued for twenty-one hours.
