[C]alled lately to see the Lt. Col. Brackenberry, & he & his Wife & 3 of his daughters drank Tea with us one afternoon, & played on Harpsichord & sung, they are all musical & the youngest daughter play’d on the German Flute very prettily – I never saw a Lady play on the Flute before. Col. Smelt accompanied in the Violin, my God Daughter sung, & my Son & Daughter Dolly play[’]d.
