Her musical perceptions fine, and abilities quick.
He spoke almost too highly for a new beginner.
A note from Fanny.

her going. He sat an hour, looking hand some.
Julia practiced her music all the evening.
I sat in the chair to read, and listen.

I sat mending all the morning, my back aches.
No interruptions, but Mrs F’s [Falconer] bill.
