Margaret Lindsay et al. in London, England - late May, 1810

from Letter from Lady Sarah Spencer to her brother, the Hon. Robert Spencer, 31 May 1810, page 106:

We are in the first burst of curiosity and observation just now, examining our Irish cousinade—Mr. Lindsay, Lady Eleanor, and Margaret and Louisa, their two daughters; they arrived among us last Friday, so we have had leisure to become very well acquainted. […] We have taken Margaret to the opera and Louisa to the play; they were delighted both of them, but don’t seem anxious to go out any more.
