John Marsh in Doncaster - 1776

from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, page 193:

I sat out in one of the early London coaches, breakfasted at Borough Bridge near Pontefract, & arrived at the handsome town of Doncaster about noon, which wishing to see & having a note of introduction to Dr Miller the organist from Mr Beverly jun’r I stopt there the remaind’r of that day, making my first visit to the Doct’rs in my way to which in crossing the church yard I heard the organ sounding, which however was not then playing by the Doct’r whom I found at home, & who was very civil to me.
