from Diary of Mary Berry, 12 September 1819, page 179:

Went to St. Cloud with the Tancreds and Tonelli. […] Drove to the park, which was then lighted up, and where were at least five or six thousand people dancing to different orchestras. We amused ourselves going from one ball to the other till past ten o’clock, when we returned to Paris.
