Mrs. Billington had her benefit at Drury Lane, 30th April. On this occasion the
opera of "Algonah" was brought forward; the drama by Cobb, the music by myself.
The opera was successful, though, on the first representation of it, poor Mrs. Billington had a terrible fright; and no wonder, poor thing, for at the end of
the first act, who did she find sitting in her dressing-room, but her beloved
husband, Monsieur de Felican, whom she thought safe and snug at Venice, whence
she had escaped from him ; but he, good soul, was deeply in love with her English
guineas, and all at once vowed he could no longer bear to be separated from his
beloved Bettina, as he called her.
