William Lisle Bowles et al. in The vicarage, Bremhill, nr. Calne, Wiltshire - 18 March, 1819

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 18 March 1819, page 278:

Arrived at Bowles’s between three and four. Doctor ––– at dinner: a gentleman, who has read multa not multum: a good sort of man, however. Bowles has altered his drawing-room, and set up an organ, and books in it. The organ made by Chevers, a common carpenter at Calne. […] Dr. ––– and [Bowles] and I sung some glees and sacred things together in the evening. Two worse voices could not well be found.
