"An exact Copy of a Composition of the learned Professor of Music J. S. Bach, with which he presented me in his own writing in the year 1749 on my going from Vienna to Leipzig, professedly to hear his astonishing performance on the Organ. -- As a token of respect J. H. has for Mr. Glen, he begs his acceptance of this copy..... -- N.B. -- My long intimacy with the late Sir John Hawkims, induced me to give him a copy to insert in his History of Music."
