Thomas Moore in Pall Mall - 16 May, 1819, in the morning

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 16 May 1819, pages 309–310:

Breakfasted [...] at the London Coffeehouse; then took a warm bath in Pall Mall; the young lady of the house playing and singing my songs all the time, and her mother meeting me as I came out of the room, with an “Anacreon” in her hand, saying, “Oh sir, are you the Mr. Moore whom I have been admiring these thousand years? When will you come to bathe again, sir?" &c. &c
