Countess Granville in Paris - January, 1840

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady Carlisle, January 1840, page 299:

Yesterday I suffered the first joy of the Carnaval, a concert at the Duke of Orleans. Excellent music, luxe of light, intense heat in the mild, fusty weather, the wearied, excédé unmusical family sitting in a row before us.
