Hester Lynch Piozzi in Brynbella, Tremeirchion - between mid August, 1800 and mid September, 1800

from Diary of Hester Lynch Piozzi, 12, 17, 18 September 1800, page 1008:

The Time is fast approaching that we are to take—for purpose of leaving pretty dear Brynbella for six Months—they will seem sixteen to me, who hate to live, & dread to dye at Distance from this Darling Spot.  These Days were always consecrated to Mirth, & we have been happy & merry here.  Mr Piozzi waked me with ye Organ & sung me to rest at his Forte piano and drank to Queeney’s health and Johnson’s Memory.
