Mary Berry in a trip from Genoa to Lerici - 9 September, 1817, at night
from Diary of Mary Berry, 10 September 1817, page 142:
We arrived at Lerici at half-past two in the afternoon, having been eighteen hours upon the sea in perfect weather; and if I had not been so ill, it would have been very enjoyable. Madame Botto sang to us for some time last night, and so did the rowers — in quite a different style, but far from unpleasant to listen to on the water.
