François Gérard et al. in Paris - 11 July, 1818, at night
from Diary of Mary Berry, 11 July 1818, page 168:
In the evening to Girard’s, where I found Grassini and her sister singing, accompanied by Paer. Grassini is aged, but still looks wonderfully well preserved. Her sister is not even pretty, but has a fine contralto voice, which will make her fortune at the Italian theatres.
