Anna Seward in Lichfield - between 1787 and 1789
from Letter from Anna Seward to Miss Sophia Weston, 4 February 1789, page 234:
In the past two years, I have made so great a point of devoting an hour most days to the harpsichord, that I feel my progress in thorough bass, and am much complimented upon it, under the consciousness that all my youth passed away in total ignorance of musical notes. I can now play in little private concerts, with tolerable facility. No small delight to such an enthusiast in the science as your friend.
