Hester Lynch Piozzi in Brynbella, Tremeirchion - between mid August, 1800 and mid September, 1800
from Diary of Hester Lynch Piozzi, 12, 17, 18 September 1800, page 1008:
The Time is fast approaching that we are to take—for purpose of leaving pretty dear Brynbella for six Months—they will seem sixteen to me, who hate to live, & dread to dye at Distance from this Darling Spot. These Days were always consecrated to Mirth, & we have been happy & merry here. Mr Piozzi waked me with ye Organ & sung me to rest at his Forte piano and drank to Queeney’s health and Johnson’s Memory.
