Notes:
Attributed to James Lyon as likely author in the Dictionary of American biography. Erroneously attributed to Francis Hopkinson by Shipton & Mooney. Hopkinson is possibly the author of the satirical A second edition (with necessary improvements, which now render the sense entirely plain) of The lawfulness, excellency, and advantage of instrumental music ... Philadelphia: Andrew Stewart, 1763, which despite its title, is entirely distinct from the present work.
