Countess Granville in Paris - mid March, 1828

from Letter from Lady Granville to her brother, the Duke of Devonshire, 21 March 1828, page 18:

‘La Muette de Portici’ is beautiful, a barcarolle sung by Nourrit fils so enchanting, the scenery and decorations so beautiful, that it would answer to you and Lady Wharncliffe to come over together on a Tuesday to see it and go home on Thursday.
