In 1793, the lady came to Leicester in search of the estate of Old Dalby, in this county, where she intended to reside ; but the mansion was so much out of repair that it would require a year or more to make it fit for her reception. During this interval she took lodgings in Leicester. Mrs. Bowater, having lived much in Germany, had acquired a fine taste in music ; and as the Abbe was a very fine performer on the violin, music was essential to fill up this irksome period. My company was sought, with that of two of my friends, to make up, occasionally an instrumental quartet [...] Our music consisted of the quartettos of Haydn, Bocherini, and Wranisky.
