Curiosity carried me to a great concert at Mrs. Cosway’s t’other night—not to hear Rubinelli, who sung one song at the extravagant price of ten guineas, and whom for as many shillings I have heard sing half a dozen at the Opera House; no, but I was curious to see an English Earl [Earl Cowper] who had passed thirty years at Florence, and is more proud of a pinchbeck principality and a paltry Order from Wirtemberg, than he was of being a peer of Great Britain, when Great Britain was something.
