Lady Lyttelton in Stockholm - 5 August, 1813

from Letter from Lady Sarah Lyttelton to her sister, Lady Georgiana Spencer, 5–6 August 1813, page 151:

The Opera Concert was worth hearing. Madame de Mainville is the Stockholm Catalani; she has a beautiful, mellow, and powerful voice. We came out from the Opera as the clocks struck nine, and therefore into daylight, which, to be sure, did surprise me not a little.
