John Courtney - April, 1789
from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, page 139:
We have been at the Play a few times’ we hope to go to morrow night to the Miser & the Farmer, bespoke by Mrs Marwood. The Gramar School Play was last Friday a pretty good House but not near so full as the Farce & easy Britons play just before. I wish you had been with us that night to have joined in the Chorus of God save the King w[hi]ch was very well sung.
