Archibald Edward Douglas et al. in Paris - 24 January, 1821

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 24 January 1821, page 193:

Bessy and I dined with the Douglases: company, Washington Irving and his brother, Williams, and Lord Miltown; in the evening, Baroness Roebeck, a young bride of seventeen, with the most perfect Hebe eyes and cheeks I have seen for a long time. Sung a good deal; supped, and had a very pleasant evening.
