Archibald Edward Douglas et al. in Paris - 17 March, 1820

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 16 -17 March 1820, page 107:

[16th] Made an effort to organise a quiet dinner of some Irish friends for to-morrow (St. Patrick’s Day).

17th. Dined, ten or eleven of us, at the Two Swans: Lord Massey, Gen. Fitzgerald, Sir J. Burke, Douglas, Williams, &c. &c. A very jolly day. Williams and I sang some of the “Irish Melodies,” and our voices went admirably together.
