Frances Calvert in London - 4 June, 1808, at night

from Journal entry, 4 June 1808, page 101:

On Friday in the evening I went to a concert at Lady Salisbury’s. Catalani, Seboni, Naldi, and many others sung, but I believe I have not a musical soul, for I was very tired of it, and nearly asleep once or twice.
