(version from I Larkin 140106) The Mary and Dorothy duple Playford 1728 A1 1-4 1st and 2nd.Cs set fwd. to ptn. and turn S back to place. 5-8 4-h once round. B 1-4 1stC lead down D and back up D into-- 5-6 1stC cast down, 2ndC lead up. ( note the music in Barnes gives a B2 but Sharp's interpretation does not. Could add something like 1stC 1/2 fig. up and turn 2-h 1/2 way - I tried to find a video of it but the video wouldn't come up and it certainly isn't very interesting as is.)
