Thomas Moore in Holland House, London - 19 May, 1819
from Diary of Thomas Moore, 19 May 1819, page 311:
The censer flung round the room by Lady H[olland]’s page after dinner seemed to astonish Murray the advocate, who had not, I suppose, seen the ceremony before; and I was myself a little astonished on hearing, as I came away, a very good male voice singing to the guitar, and finding that it was the butler who was accompanying himself in an Italian air.
