August 4 1815: Marry Not!

NPG D1159; George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron by T. Blood, published by  James Asperne, after  Richard Westall

Friday August 4th 1815: Dine at Burdett’s. Present, Bickersteth, Lady Burdett, Miss Burdett, and Mr Burdett.20 In the Courier tonight it is said Savary, one of the Lallemands, and Bertrand are taken out of the Bellerophon and sent to France.21 All cry shame on this. Passed night with Douglas Kinnaird and Lord Byron, who tells me he and she have begun a little snubbing on money matters – marry not, says he … I hear twice from Augusta Leigh

––  John Cam Hobhouse writes in his diary for August 4 1815.
