1784, 14 October

My most beloved friend and sister, Susan,

1784, 27 September 

Dearest Father, Composer of My Very Being and Arbiter of My most Consequential Choices,

I write first and foremost to congratulate you, Father!  No daughter of any great man could be more proud than I am to hear of your recent commission in Rome.  Music for Holy Week at…
