William Holland in Over Stowey - 20 November, 1799

from Paupers and pig killers / William Holland, pages 19-20:

The young ones had a dance in the afternoon, minuets first and the the Steps and a Reel and I myself sung for them. Margaret dances a very good Minuet indeed.  Mis Dodwell a most excellent dancer, so neat and nimble in her steps. Miss Lewis sung and played on the Harpsichord very prettily. [...] The youngsters were in good spirits, danced themselves quite fatigued and were glad at last to go to bed.
