Countess Granville in Paris - early October, 1827

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady Carlisle, 8 October 1827, page 433:

Lady Keith’s house is delightful. Talking, singing, whisting, and, as he is acquainted with all sorts of people, one meets the curious added to the pleasant, and his popularity makes people too happy to go. I think Lady Keith is more popular than she was, and she deserves to be so, for she is very civil and very sensible, and is always delighted to open her house[.]
