D. (Dudley) Ryder et al. in Lucas Square, London, England - 8 September, 1715, at night

from The Diary of Dudley Ryder, 1715-1716 , page 93:

Diary entry 8 September 1715 Went to the Gill House. Met there with Mr. [John] Bowes. We went together upstairs and [met?] a friend of his [Mr Suly]. After supper we took a walk in the street and towards Ormonde Street and in Lucas Square the gentleman, his friend [Mr Suly] sang us several songs. I was extremely pleased with his singing. He did it admirably well with a great deal of judgement and a good voice, but [I] was surprised when Mr. Bowes told me he [Suly] had never learnt of a master nor knew anything of the notes.
