Elizabeth (Bessy) Moore et al. in Paris - 8 August, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, pages 364–365:

7th. At home. Wrote to the Bryans in the evening to say that I meant to take Bessy to Tancredi to-morrow, and asking them to join us. […]

8th. Note from Bryan, to say he had taken a box. Went and dined with them. Pasta charming. The way she sings Traditore; her action with the finger in the girdle; her dignity in pronouncing Saprai, quando cadrai; all delightful.
