Countess Granville in Paris - 13 March, 1836

from Letter from Lady Granville to her brother, the Duke of Devonshire, 17 March 1836, page 200:

But what do you think, dear Grace, of what is beyond all whats? Why, on Sunday last, Thom had an amateur singing reunion, and Mrs. Jauncey warbled. Well, nobody but Grisi ever had such a pipe, and a perfection as to taste and skill that leaves all the other singing-birds in Society at an immeasurable distance. People returned in ecstasies.
