Countess Granville in Paris - November, 1831

from Letter from Lady Granville to her brother, the Duke of Devonshire, November 1831, page 115:

Paris is quiet, and there is as yet a delicious absence of all dissipation. We have had Pasta at the Opera. She is gone and Malibran makes her rentrée to-night. Lablache and Rubini font nos délices.
