Anne Jane Barbara Moore et al. in Mayfield Cottage, nr. Ashbourne, Derbyshire - 1814
Barbara[*] has this moment interrupted me with her often-repeated demand for “pretty mookis,” which means “pretty music,” and I have accordingly set her up on a chair at the pianoforte, where she is inflicting all sorts of tones on my ears. I hope she will continue as fond of it as she is now.
