John Bacon Sawry Morritt et al. in Bothwell Castle, South Lanarkshire - 7 September, 1808, at night
from Diary of Mary Berry, 7 September 1808, page 369:
In the evening there was dancing and music, and they had all sorts of ridiculous dances. They played at false acting, Morritt reciting Antony’s oration upon Cæsar's body, and I making the gestures; all which made us laugh not a little.
