Mary Frampton in Ranelagh Gardens, Chelsea - 7 May, 1789, at night

from The Journal of Mary Frampton, from the Year 1779, until the year 1846, pages 22–23:

Several great fêtes were given late in the spring, on the occasion of the King’s recovery. I was not out in the world, but was permitted to go to one of them given by Boodle’s Club, at Ranelagh, on May 7th. […] The Rotunda at Ranelagh was ornamented for the occasion, and the numerous and excellent bands were stationed in the middle. There were temporary supper-rooms annexed for the occasion. I did not get home till between six and seven o’clock in the morning, but was as happy as possible, and the impression of all I saw is still fresh in my mind.
