Mary Berry et al. in London, England - 11 July, 1811

from Diary of Mary Berry, 11 July 1811, page 483:

Went to Lady Cork’s; a great assembly in her upper rooms, which are very prettily furnished, particularly the boudoir, opening into the conservatory. The Prince there, and all the world; and a numerous world is still in London. There were some masks, and some people singing, and Mrs. Billington at a piano-forte.
