Mr. Holride - late 18th Century
from Letter from Anna Seward to John Saville, 10 June 1793, pages 253–254:
Mr Holride inquired after you with friendly solicitude, and told the whole company he had never felt equal pleasure from any man’s singing as from yours, owing to the varied and perfect expression which your sensibility and poetic taste gave to your songs.
