Hester Lynch Piozzi et al. in Paris - mid September, 1784, in the morning
from Diary of Hester Lynch Piozzi, 7 December 1784, page 619:
Mr Piozzi’s Valet too (a Venetian) was dressing my Hair at Paris one Morning, while somebody was playing on the Violin at the opposite Windows of the same Hotel:―I observed him to fret, & seem oddly miserable: What’s the matter with you said I Ercolani? If (replied he, Mistress) that Beast does not leave off soon I shall run Mad or dye directly, & you will see an honest Italian killed by a French Dog’s howling.―
