"Miss Fanny Brooke and myself made tea and coffee;
her ladyship presiding at the chocolate tray.
A more elegant private breakfast
was never given to any company.
The urns, trays, waiter, and canisters
were all of silver, engraved with Sir Charles's arms;
the china was beautiful; in short,
the whole equipage was handsome beyond
any one I ever saw."
Charles Lawson in Vicissitudes in Genteel Life, 1794
