Countess Granville in The Hague - 1 April, 1824

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, 2 April 1824, pages 270–271:

Yesterday was a happy day […] Came home to tea, and to Mr. Jones’ singing, which is beautiful.  He is equally at home in Rossini, French and German romances, with the best taste and most indefatigable good-humour.  Mr. Chad sings also well.
