Keppel Richard Craven in Paris - early March, 1814

from Letter from Keppel Craven to the Miss Berrys, 14 March 1814, page 21:

You know Paris too well for me to describe; but the improvements and additions are wonderful, not always in good taste, but the effect imposing, from magnitude of space and plan. […] The theatres much the same, but they have lost some of the old vehement screamers at the opera, and I think their successors, however desirous they may be of equalling them, have not the physical means.
