Countess Granville in Sandon Hall, Staffordshire - early October, 1811

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G Morpeth, 11 October 1811, page 22:

The Duc de Berri sings delightfully all the opera duets and trios with Lady Harrowby and la petite Suzanne, who sings beautifully. She grows prettier every day. They are all quite in love with her, and really she is a little angel. She does everything equally well. Her waltzing is the prettiest thing that can be seen, she plays well on the pianoforte, and all this with the simplicity and diffidence of a child.
