Caroline Powys et al. in Bath - 3 January, 1797

from Diary of Caroline Powys, 3 January 1797, page 294:

At the play “The Deuce is in Him.” The Royal Family there, and when Signora Storacé sang “God Save the King,” I do believe half the audience shed tears, as her manner, voice, and action was beyond anything one could imagine.
