Mary Berry in Hamilton - 31 October, 1814
from Diary of Mary Berry, 31 October 1814, page 35:
We went to dine at Hamilton after tea. The Marchioness sang a good deal, and though I had heard her singing so much praised, it did really surpass my expectations. I never heard Italian better sung; never heard a voice so sweet and so flexible, or so capable of expressing all and executing all.
