Chadwick was also an accomplished composer and wrote many songs and musical numbers, many of which were published. Offered here is a one-page sheet, written entirely in Chadwick's hand, listing a number of his compositions. Chadwick's full signature appears along the top as part of the title, which reads "Piano Forte Compositions And Arrangements By Henry Chadwick." Listed below are the titles of forty-five different works including waltzes, polkas, marches, quick steps, and quadrilles. Both the text and Chadwick's signature have been penned in black ink and grade "7" overall. The lined sheet (7.5 x 12.5 inches) displays a single vertical fold and three horizontal folds (along the edges of which are a few tiny tears), as well as a few small areas of light discoloration. In Very Good condition overall.
