The once celebrated beauty. Miss Wroughton, still keeps up her consequence by her large parties, and fine concerts every Sunday evening, where Ranzini, and many amateurs sing and play. The Prince [of Wales] always attended to hear Miss Mayo (Mrs. Lutwyche’s niece), sing and play, and indeed I never heard any one so charming. Not that I attended Miss Wroughton’s Sunday concerts, as I quite agreed with the two amiable Duchesses of Newcastle, and Hamilton, who never would appear there on those evenings. The amiable Lady Nelson, who as usual was at Bath with her father-in-law, had some music sent her from Russia endeavouring to be expressive of her lord's victories. She sent it to Ranzini, and some of the opera musicians came from London to perform it. The great ballroom was the place fixed upon, and there were about one thousand three hundred people, but the amateurs were disappointed, as the “Battle of the Nile,” as one might suppose, was only a monstrous continued noise. But, however, every one was grateful to her Ladyship.
