J follow the same system in writing my first english letter to Miss Burney; after such an enterprize nothing can affright me.
The mistress said: "I hope it'll be a pleasant evening, Burney!"
The concertos for the harpsichord which Burney published soon after his return to London were regarded with much admiration.
I wished to know, for instance, what Dr. Burney had to say about singing.
I have some reason to believe Miss Burney's spirits a little sunk.
Shawn swam around to the other side as Burney raised the fish.
Burney assigns to it the credit of being "the first sacred drama or oratorio in which recitative was used."
"Go and get some dry clothes, while I go after the jugs," said Burney.
Burney expressly states that "the Lessons of the one and the Suites of the other were the only good music for keyed instruments."
Shawn came around with the boat, Burney came out with the drag-hooks.
