Two of her [Miss Lee’s] pupils were with her, one of whom is Miss Tickel, daughter to the sweet warbler, Mary Linley, who married Mr Tickel, and niece to the British Cecilia, the late Mrs Sheridan. This young lady sung to us with a thin, weak, but pretty voice, that wanted the sustaining power of instrumental accompaniment, and which, besides, was not modulated with Linleyan skill. She gave me, however, an opportunity which I had wished for, of hearing the ballad sung which I made for Rauzzini to set, and which was so often sung at Bath last winter,—“O! why my locks so yellow,” &c. It is sweetly adorned by the recitative and air.
