John Marsh in Romsey - at the end of 1768

from The John Marsh Journals: The Life and Times of a Gentleman Composer (1752-1828), page 59:

Mr Daman & I ... thought we might as well call on Mr Green the organ builder... I here saw a curious instrument with bells struck by hammers, play'd with a sett of keys like a harpsichord making for a gentleman, but which kind of instrument I never heard of afterwards.
