Countess Granville in On the banks of the River Orwell, Suffolk - September, 1821

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, September 1821, pages 215–216:

I did not do justice to our yesterday’s expedition. The Orwell quite full, its pretty banks covered with people, carriages of all sorts, flags, a band of music and a heavenly day. Sweet Lady Harland, in a dove-coloured pelisse, supported by the little admiral and the proprietor of the ship, uttering in a nervous voice, ‘Success to the good ship the Fairly,’ and dashing a glass bottle full of wine against its stem.
