Elizabeth Vassall Fox et al. in Bowood House, Derry Hill, Wiltshire - 22 July, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 22 July 1819, page 344:

Dined at Bowood […] Sung in the evening, and was rather glad I had an opportunity of making the Hollands feel a little what I could do in this way, for they never heard me properly before. Lady H. evidently much pleased: told me afterwards my articulation was the most beautiful she had ever heard.
