Bowles and I (after securing our tickets for the Harmonic in the evening) dined at the White Hart. Went at night to the Harmonic; very full rooms — at least 300 persons. Introduced to a whole shoal of baronets, Sir Robert This and Sir John That. Never was so stared at in my life before. Three things of mine sung, “The Minstrel Boy,” “Hark! the Vesper Hymn,” and a glee from “Anacreon.”

[…]

At supper escaped from a wretched table, where I had been preordained to sit between two ugly old Blue Boars, who said they wished much to “talk to Mr. Moore.” After supper, to my no small horror, “The Minstrel Boy” was sung again, for the purpose of introducing a speech about me from Captain Crofton, proposing my health in a most panegyric style. It was received with great acclamations; but, from having no previous suspicion of such an honour, I had hardly a decent word to say in returning thanks for it.
