Mary Delany in Dublin - October, 1731

from Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany: with interesting Reminiscences of King George the Third and Queen Charlotte, page 294:

On Friday we went to a concert of music, but our sport there was very near being spoiled, for most of the performers were at the Castle, playing to their Graces, and did not think fit to come among us till past eight at night : we then had two or three pieces of music very well performed, Dubourg being the violino primo.
