Catherine Pole-Tylney-Long-Wellesley et al. in London, England - 31 May, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 31 May 1819, pages 317–318:

Arrived in town just in time to dress for dinner, at Pearse’s the Bank director and M. P. for Devizes […] Company at Pearse’s, Duke of Dorset, Lord Clinton, Mr. and Mrs. Long Wellesley, &c. &c. An assembly there in the evening; re-presented to Miss Addington, whom I had met before one morning at Lady Donegal’s and had much conversation with her, to the astonishment of some Sidmouthites from my neighbourhood. Mrs. Frere sang, and the Miss Pearses played; but on my being asked, bolted, the company being too large.
