Charlton Byam Wollaston in Westbrook Hay, Hemel Hempstead - early June, 1827

from Letter from C.B. Wollaston to Mary Frampton, 7 June [1827], page 332:

Lady Frances plays on the guitar, and sings to it trifling things, but in too low a pitch of voice, which does not suit her. Perhaps my general musical fastidiousness prevents my being properly sensible of its merit, but others are delighted, and she certainly looks to great advantage during the performance. She seems to be really very amiable and unaffected in her manner. The family are very fond of her.
