Countess Granville in Epinay-sur-Seine, France - June, 1817

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, June 1817, pages 109-110:

I have been spending to-day with my children at Epinay, a campagne at about six miles from Paris, where Mr. Ellis has established himself. […] The Duc de Rohan was there. His vanity is like a farce. Somebody was complimenting him one day on his having an expressive countenance. He said, ‘Oui, mais il faudrait me voir quand je prie.’ He sang to us almost as well as he thinks he does, et c’est tout dire.
