5591. MUSIC, Harmonica.—

I am very
much pleased with your project on the harmonica,
and the prospect of your succeeding
in the application of keys to it. It will be the
greatest present which has been made to the
musical world this century, not excepting the
piano-forte. If its tone approaches that given
by the finger as nearly only as the harpsichord
does that of the harp, it will be very valuable.—
To Francis Hopkinson. Washington ed. ii, 75.
(P. 1786)
