Countess Granville et al. in Paris - May, 1817
Sir Charles Stuart is all graciousness […] He lent us his box at the Opera, and as Susy was much better I went to see the ballet. Sir Charles and Lord F. Somerset were with us. It was the ‘Carnaval de Venise,’ very gay and pretty. Bigottini acts better than she dances. I do not think her very handsome; her petticoats are about five inches long.
