Duchess of Portland et al. - 1742
from The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs. Delany, Series 1, Volume 2, page 179:
She is a mistress of the harpsichord, and has a brilliancy in her playing peculiar to herself; she does a number of works and of many of them is the inventor, and all her acquaintance are her copyers—happy for them if they would equally endeavour to imitate her virtues.
