Colonel Guering et al. in Calwich - 21 September, 1751

from Letter from Miss Viney to Mr Granville, page 46:

The Col. and his lady did us the favour to spend the evening with us last night, and we had two violins, Mr. Bailis and Bicknell and Mr Smith; Mrs. Ready could not come, mama was hoarse, and so you may guess how fine a concert we entertained them with.  Good heavens! how low poor music is now reduced!
