Evidence:
Mary Berry, Journal, 9 June 1808: 'Dined at Lady Donegal's with Agnes [Berry, her sister]. Philippa (Godfrey), Charles Moore, and Anacreon [ie Thomas] Moore at dinner. I praised highly the two poems ("Corruption" and "Intolerance") that I had been reading in the morning, before the author (little Moore), without knowing it. After dinner he owned the fact, and was much pleased with my unsuspicious praise.'
