Countess Granville in Brussels - November, 1824, at night

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, November 1824, pages 312–313:

I did my duty at Mrs. Taylor’s. We went at nine and stayed till half-past eleven. It was une partie très fine, and would have reminded me of London if it had not been for the variety of occupations, which is certainly an improvement upon our drums. Granville went immediately to whist. […] In the course of the evening we had some very pretty music, pianoforte, guitar, singing, and later Thiel the Russian Dip[lomat] played waltzes and la jeunesse danced.
