Countess Granville in London, England - the 1800's, at night
I got up early, walked in the Park and drove with Lady Harrowby, dined at Devonshire House, went to the Opera, supped at Devonshire House, and returned home between two and three.
The dinner at Devonshire House was late, long, and dull. The opera very brilliant, but I was bored. Mr. Montagu particularly chatsome, Mr. Ward chirping, poor little Lord Walpole after a bad illness no bigger than my thumb. I bid them all good-bye with an inward satisfaction that beggars description.
