Samuel Rogers et al. in Sloperton Cottage, Bromham, Wiltshire - 22 October, 1818, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 22 October 1818, page 201:

[Moore invited his friend Samuel Rogers and the poet William Crowe to dinner in order to discuss poetry.  They are unexpectedly joined by other unnamed guests, a man who had no interest in poetry but who proved to be 'a very quiet and gentleman-like listener, and his wife a very rosy and good-humoured looker-on.'  An account of the poetical discussion follows.]

Sung for them in the evening.
