in consequence of the missive, I would guess she plays rather than sings, penned by Laraine
Guess what? I would like to counter that argument with a reference from another novel of the time! In Vanity Fair Amelia goes to a very similar school and learns how to sing. She also is no prodigy. When we see the school ads from the period in places like JA Regency World magazine, they always list singing in the things they will teach. I mean how hard is singing? I can't say Harriet wouldn't be too shy to play or sing but I think it likely she would have been taught.
If you have a problem with this, say so, don't just delete it silently.
