1st Earl of Auckland et al. in Paris - 15 September, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 15 September 1819, page 10:

Went with the Herberts and Lord Auckland to the Opera; “Armida,” beautiful in music, in spectacle, and in dancers. The song, Plus j’observe ces lieux, et plus je les admire, delicious; the symphony mixing the flowing of the river with the warbling of birds.
