Unless one of the B's is the start of a new phrase.  Some printers would
write a B natural in that case, but it isn't universal.

If there happens to be a number of greater voices in the Concert than
your own, they will swallow you up; therefore in such a case, I would
recommend to you the resolution (tho' not the impudence) of a
discarded actor, who after he had been twice hissed off the stage,
mounted again, and with great assurance he thundered out these words:
"I will be heard".
