1st Earl of Harrowby et al. in Palais Royal, Paris - 26 July, 1831
On Monday evening Lord and Lady Harrowby, Granville and I went to the Palais Royal to the worktable. […]
On Tuesday we returned there, zealous, loyal creatures with the four young ladies to a concert. There we found the Dom,* the Empress and French music; very hot, but amusing from the circumstances, very much so to see the Emperor and Lafayette in a confab.
*[Editor’s fn:] ‘Dom Pedro and his wife, the Emperor and Empress of Brazil.’
