in The park of Bellevue Château, Meudon, Paris and Sèvres, nr. Paris - 25 June, 1821, in the afternoon

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 245:

A large diner champêtre given by the Villamils, in the park of Bellevue: the Storys, Kennys [sic], Williams, Irving, Poole (author of “Hamlet Travesti”), &c. &c.; pleasant enough. After Williams and I had sung one of the “Irish Melodies,” somebody said, “Everything that’s national is delightful.” “Except the National Debt, ma’am,” says Poole. Took tea at Villamil’s, and danced to the pianoforte.
