John Marsh et al. in Doncaster - 1796
from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, page 193:
[Edward Miller] attended me to the church, a large handsome one, with a fine organ, on which a yound pupil of his was than practising the Overture in Esther, who making out, as I thought but indifferently, I thought I need not be ashamed to touch it imediately after him, & therefore at Dr Miller’s desire sat down & played about 1⁄2 an hour, & was much pleased with the instrument, w’ch had as fine a Trumpet stop as I ever heard.
