Elizabeth (Bessy) Moore et al. in Sloperton Cottage, Bromham, Wiltshire - 1 January, 1819, at night
from Diary of Thomas Moore, 31 December 1818, page 248:
All bustle and preparation for our dance in the evening; the supper laid in my study. […] All went off most gaily. We did our best to make them happy; and, to do our guests justice, they seemed all to come with a determination to be pleased. Supped at half-past twelve. I had lobsters, oysters, and champagne, express from London for the occasion, and the supper looked not only gay but elegant. Twenty-two persons supped in my little study. I sung for them after supper, and then to dancing again till near four in the morning. […] A gay beginning to the new year.
