8th Lord Kinnaird of Inchture et al. in Paris - 1 May, 1820, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 1 May 1820, page 115:

Went with the Storys to the Italian Opera in the evening; the “Barbiere,” which improves upon me.  Lord Kinnaird came to the box to me; arrived only a day or two ago from Milan ; staid with us and saw Bessy out.
