Lady Lyttelton in London, England - 3 June, 1808, at night
We went to the Opera last night (to-night being Whitsun-eve), and it was a new one, the music rather pretty; inside our box we had our usual visits from Lord Temple and Willy Ponsonby, both of whom are so regular, I can hardly help laughing when they come in, like clockwork figures of fat and lean.
