Two Daughters of Mrs. Dillon et al. in Dublin - December, 1750

from The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs. Delany, Series 1, Volume 2, page 628:

Letter from Mrs. Delany to Mrs. Dewes, Delville, 15 Dec. 1750 - This week I have had a feast of music. At the rehearsal on Tuesday morning, and last night at the performance, of the Messiah ; very well performed indeed, and the pleasure of the music greatly heightened by considering how many poor prisoners would be released by it. You may (Bushe says) write to Mrs. Dillon when you please—she is sure she will be glad to hear from you; her two modest, innocent girls went with us to the Messiah, and asked much after you.
