a young married couple et al. in London, England - 7 June, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 7 June 1819, pages 324–325:

Dined at a coffee-house, but did not get to the Philharmonic till the first act was over. Saw Braham there, who took me aside, and proposed that I should write words to some fantasias, or wild melodies of his, so as to make scenas of them, and that we should publish them together; but my mentioning that I was bound to Power put an end to the idea, as he is bound to the new Musical Institution. Met the pretty young bride, Mrs. ––– (Longman’s daughter), and her husband, and sat by her during the concert.
