Mary Dewes in Bath - April, 1767
from Autobiography and Correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany, page 133:
Oxford must now begin to look very pleasant. How go on your concerts ? Here is one every week, which I generally go to. Linley's daughter sings at it, and she has a sweet voice ; but he makes her sing too much and too hard songs, for she is very young ; there is a good deal of bad music, and some very good, so it is, (as it is in life) checkered.
