Caroline Powys in York Hotel, Bath, Somerset - 2 February, 1807, in the morning

from Diary of Caroline Powys, 2 February 1807, pages 363–364:

A morning subscription concert, for the benefit of Miss Randal, at the New Room, York Hotel. She is only six years old, and is indeed a most wonderful little creature; plays on the piano in a most wonderful manner, and has a sweet voice; she is accompanied on the harp by her blind father, and by her uncle, Mr. Parry, on the flageolet. It was a pleasing sight to see the little performer lifted on the platform by her uncle, and as she walk’d up the room she was spoken to by all she pass’d near, and met with great applause. Before she was three years old she could play three tunes.
