William Holland in Over Stowey - 23 February, 1800

from Paupers and pig killers / William Holland, page 26:

The Church was full this evening, some strangers with instruments of various kinds among the Singers. Poor Ben could not make it out this day being in the background with these youngsters. He is old Sternhold and Hopkins for ever in the plain old stile and cannot well comprehend this grunting and tooting.
