Thomas Moore in Milan Cathedral, Milan - 3 October, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 3 October 1819, page 21:

Went to the cathedral: saw the statue of St. Bartholomew carrying his skin about him in graceful folds like a mantle: saw the monument of Cardinal Caprara, Legati ad Imperatorem Napoleonem Aug.; the music not very good; one or two pretty girls among the congregation.
