What read you in that Book My Lord? cries Rosencrans to Hamlet; the pretended Madman replies––Words, Words, Words.  When I am looking into Gray’s Poems, and Merry’s Diversity, I am apt to think that the Answer given wd be well suited to their Readers; for ’tis all about nothing […]  ’Tis much the same with modern Musick for ought I find; Clementi’s Lessons and Dusseck’s Sonatas so fashionable now––serve but to whet my Appetite and sharpen my Delight in a Concerto of Bach, a Chorus of Handel, and a single Song of Sacchini. 

What hear you my Lady? one might ask with Rosencrans––Marchesi’s Admirers might reply with Truth Notes, Notes, Notes.
