g)   They all join hands again and this time include the fourth couple (between the first gentleman and the third lady.) The first lady then steps to the center while the seven circle round her. The first gentleman steps in and trades places with her again. He steps out between the two adjacent ladies again giving his left hand to the one not his partner. And they all finish with an allemande left, and right and left grand (see page j.o^) .
