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.)
