Thomas Moore in Dublin - 17 October, 1821, in the afternoon

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 290:

Egan the harp maker, most anxious that I should judge of the power of his improved Irish harps, sent his son with one. The chaise at the door at half-past three, and some beautiful Irish airs played to me during my last moments. Had wine in, and all filled bumpers to the Irish harp and our next happy meeting; the effect saddening.
