Mary Berry in Rome - 26 December, 1783, at night

from Diary of Mary Berry, 26 December 1783, pages 61–2:

In the evening a conversazione and concert at Cardinal de Bernis’.  As the emperor and king were both to be there, the crowd assembled was immense; the street was illuminated near his house, and the house completely so on the outside from top to bottom; large rooms were crowded.
