Lord Granville et al. in Feydeau Theatre, Paris - 28 July, 1815, at night

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, 29 July 1815, page 62:

We went to the Feydeau last night and saw ‘Félicie,’ a very pretty opéra comique. Martin sang and acted delightfully. The thing at the end was all about Henri et les Bourbons, and the audience were in transports.
