In the evening the house and its walls are accustomed to conversation, and it never seems to flag. Little Moore, who lives within three miles of this place, and is always a well-received guest, helps it on, and diversifies it sometimes with his singing some of his own verses. Since the two Liddells have been here, Lady Barrington and Lady Williamson, we have had delightful music, and much of it, every evening. Their voices are admirable, and their style of singing excellent. I don't know when I have been more delighted with music, although they have seldom sung any of my particular favourites. This morning we have been in the chapel, which very conveniently opens from the greenhouse. The organist of the neighbouring town comes every Saturday to instruct the parish children in singing. Our two ladies gave us several pieces of Handel divinely well, with the accompaniment of the organ; Lord Lansdowne always much enjoying music.
