Abstract:
This piano piece comes from a collection of music belonging to Miss Elizabeth Gittins, governess to the children of Patrick Hill Throsby and his successive wives Elizabeth and Harriet, in Moss Vale. All the pieces in this bound volume were probably collected
in Sydney between 1852 and 1860 and suggest that Elizabeth was keen to have the latest popular tunes at hand.
