Archibald Edward Douglas et al. in Paris - 30 January, 1822, at night

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, pages 321–322:

Went out early to order wine, ice, &c. &c., having a dinner party at home to-day. Company, Douglas, Kenny, Stibbert, Story, and Millingen. The dinner (thanks to my dear girl’s management and superintendence) most comfortable, and Villamil’s excellent Lafitte (of which he sent me a dozen the other day), not the worst part of the feast. Drank of this six bottles, two of Madeira, and one of Champagne. A party in the evening: sung, danced, drank three bottles more of Champagne, besides lots of negus, and did not part till two. One or two of my dinner guests rather lively.
