Elizabeth Emma Cunliffe[-Offley] et al. in London, England - 1 June, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 1 June 1819, pages 318–319:

Dinner at Lord Crewe’s: company, Luttrell, Rogers, the Cunliffes, &c. […] I sung in the evening, and Mrs. Cunliffe sung a song of Lewis’s, “I am not mad, I am not mad,” without accompaniment. The energy with which she gives these songs is sometimes rather painful; but they have great effect. I have seen numbers in tears at her ballad, “It was a winter’s evening.”
