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