I was on Friday at a Concert on Friday last where there were ½ a doz: Fiddles 2 Violos. a Bassoon 2 Horns and a Trumpet in a Room about the size of yours at the O.S.S.H. [Old South Sea House]— and with a Bed in it: we made a most damnable noise, and split a thousand Crochets each into a thousand Shivers—I shall go there again.
