Comte de Flahaut et al. in Paris - 10 March, 1820, at night
from Diary of Thomas Moore, 7-10 March 1820, page 106:
Went that evening (the 10th) to Madame de Flahault’s [sic],—the only breach in my anti-company system I have yet made. A small party; Mrs. Fitzherbert and Miss Seymour, Lady E. Stuart, Mrs. Ellis, Lady Hunloke, &c. Flahault sung, and so did I; very nervous about it. If I had given way, should have burst out a-crying; as I remember doing many years ago at a large party at Lady Rothes’s. No one believes how much I am sometimes affected in singing, partly from being touched myself, and partly from an anxiety to touch others.
