Thomas Moore in Paris - 27 February, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, pages 329–330:

Went to Madame de Sapenay’s concert (through the intervention of my literary friend, M. Dorion, who has written epics, lyrics, and God knows what, and sent them all to me to read), and heard some music, the best of which was M. Obricht’s violin. A madame Molinos (formerly Mdlle. Lafitte), Galli, and a Garde du Corps, were the vocals.
