Fourth Earl of Orford in London, England - in the beginning of 1782
from Letter from Horace Walpole to Sir Horace Mann, 7–8 February 1782, page 156:
So far from juvenile airs, I lead a most recluse life, and scarcely ever go into any public, indeed only to very private places, except what I cannot avoid, the public nights at Gloucester House, and they are not very numerous. I have been once to the Opera to hear the Allegranti, whom I like, and who is almost as much in fashion as Vestris the dancer was last year: the applause to her is rather greater. Pacchierotti is much admired too, and the dancers are a capital set.
