Lord Granville et al. in Paris - 18 May, 1827, at night

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady Carlisle, 21 May 1827, page 410:

On Friday evening Granville, Mrs. Hamilton, and I went to see ‘Moïse.’ It is very fine, and the French are beginning to sing in a rational manner. They have left off screaming, and with the help of Cinti the ensemble is very good.
