William Gardiner in Leicester - the 1780's

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, page 13:

At the conclusion of the American war, the militia returned to Leicester, and I was highly delighted to hear the band play at the evening parade. The instruments were quite new to me, especially the clarionets, which I had never seen or heard before.
