Misc. Comments

Since the uploaded file is an arrangement, it is unclear what the original was. Since Arkwright was an actress, her songs and ballads may have been used in theatrical productions, with instrumental or orchestral accompaniment. Alternatively, she may have only written the melody, in which case the piano harmonisation might be the only accompaniment there is. However, unless more is unearthed about her work, it remains unknown.
