“Mrs. Grattan Respectfully informs the Ladies and Gentlemen of the City, that the 5th ladies’ concert will be on tuesday, the 28th day of February, at the Assembly-Room.” The concert was to begin at 6:30, and “at half past eight, the music will attend for the ball.” The program, part instrumental and part vocal, consisted of selections by Haydn, Handel, and others. Mrs. Grattan was among the vocalists. This was the same Mrs. Grattan who opened a linen and muslin warehouse on North Sixth Street (Gaz. of the U.S. [Philadelphia], 28 Feb. 1797).
