Caroline Powys in Derbyshire - between 8 July, 1757 and 9 September, 1757, 12:00 AM
from Journal of a Tour into Yorkshire and Derbyshire, 1757, page 25:
One afternoon we were most agreeably entertained at Mrs. Bourn’s, where we went to tea. Their gardens are charming, and as we drank tea in one of the buildings, the family being very musical and charming voices, the young ladies sang, while the gentlemen accompanied on their German flutes. This little concert took up the heat of the day, after which we walk’d over the grounds.
