Catherine Talbot in Vauxhall Gardens, London - mid April, 1749, in the morning
from A Series of Letters between Mrs. Elizabeth Carter and Miss Catherine Talbot, from the Year 1741 to 1770, page 304:
I went one morning of last week, quite chid there by my lord and my mother, to the Vauxhall music. We went by water, and returned in a coach through Fulham by a beautiful country, sweet as spring could make it. The crowd was astonishing, but not terrible. I took it for granted you was there, though among 8000 people we did not happen to meet one another. Dr. Potter was there, looking and enquiring for you.
