Mrs Hamilton et al. in Dublin - late January, 1750

from Letter from Mrs Delany to Mrs Dewes, Delville, 2 February 1750-1751, page 8:

Tuesday was the rehearsal of Judas Maccabeus, to which we went. Those songs brought Mrs. Viney and her present distress so much to my mind, that I had not spirits to go to the performance of last Thursday.
