Mary Delany in Bath - mid November, 1755

from Letter from Mrs Delany to Mrs Dewes, Bath, 19 November 1755, page 365:

Poor Linley had a tolerable concert, but not a creature I knew except the Bishop of Derry and his son.  Sally and I were well diverted at the odd figures, and staid till they begun country dances (for there was a ball), that we might observe them to advantage.
