John Courtney in Beverley - 4 April, 1793

from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, page 130:


I was at Count Borowlaski’s Concert as were my Sons John, Henry, & Thomas & my two little Girls. I had a good deal of conversation with C. Borowlaski, he is very sensible & clever, he play’d some pretty Lessons of his own composing on the Guitar. I was sorry I told him I c[oul]d not have the Pleasure of his Company at my House as my second Son had been & was so ill. My Son John played at the Concert as did Mess[e]rs Marwood & Ackton &c. together with Lambert & Southerne.
