Lady Miller et al. in Bath - 8 June, 1780

from Letter from Frances Burney to Susanna Burney, June 1780, page 161:

Our Conversation would have lasted till leave taking, but for our being interrupted by Miss Miller, a most beautiful little Girl of 10 years old. Miss White begged her to sing us a French song, - she Coqueted, - but Mrs Riggs came to us, and said if I wished it, I did her Grand Daughter great honour, and she insisted upon her obedience. The little Girl Laughed and complied,- we went into another Room to hear her, followed by the Miss Caldwells. She sung in a pretty Childish manner enough.
