Countess Granville in Paris - 14 September, 1833, in the morning

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady Carlisle, 15 September 1833, page 145:

Such are our pleasures, not to forget the evening concerts, transferred to the morning from three to six. Yesterday I sat it all out with the young ones. Beautiful music, beautifully played. It is just opposite our gates. Perfect order is observed, a slight paling keeps out the people. We have one little wooden chair and entrance for cavalier et sa dame for one franc. We think it would succeed in the Grove. Eighty-five thousand francs the musicians have already gained.
