from Letter from James Frampton to his mother, Phillis Frampton, 3 July 1814, page 235:

The Duke of Wellington was again received at the opera last night by the house all standing up and clapping and cheering, and the performers singing ‘See the Conquering Hero comes.’ I came in in good time for this.
