from The John Marsh Journals: The Life and Times of a Gentleman Composer (1752-1828), page 62:

On the 2d. of Jan'y 1769. I went to the Portsm' Concert, where I play'd 2d. ripieno & was wondrously pleased at meeting again with a grand crash, there being 16 performers, & on the 5th. return'd in the Salisbury coach to Romsey, with not quite as much alacrity however as I went the last time.
