Captain Charles Morris et al. in London, England - 22 April, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 345:

Dined at Lord Blessington’s: company, Lord Erskine, Dr. Parr, Captain Morris, Lord Auckland, Galt, &c. None of the veterans very bright, though the old American sung some of his songs. What a venerable triumvirate,—learning, law, and lilting!
