Lady Helena Robinson et al. in Paris - 3 January, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 314:

Dined with the Robinsons: no one but Cadogan; a good dinner and agreeable day. Sung to them in the evening, and saw in Lady Helena's eyes those beads (to use the language of distillers) which show that the spirit is proof.

It is difficult to identify 'Cadogan'. It is possible that Moore referred to the 2nd Earl Cadogan (Charles Henry Sloane Cadogan, 29 November 1749 – 23 December 1832), but he is said to have been 'insane' by the time he inherited the title in 1807. It is more likely that the Cadogan in question was the future 3rd Earl, at that time a Royal Navy captain and later to become admiral, George Cadogan (5 May 1783 – 15 September 1864).
