Anna Seward in Lichfield - 24 April, 1798
from Letter from Anna Seward to The Right Hon. Lady Eleanor Butler, and Miss Ponsonby, 24 April 1798, page 77:
This day a summer’s sun warmly gilds the fields, the gardens, and the groves, now diffusing fragrance, and bursting into bloom. Fresh and undulating breezes from the east lured me into my drawing-room, having placed in its lifted sash the Æolian harp. It is, at this instant, warbling through all the varieties of the harmonic chords.
