Jeremy Bentham in a trip from London to Browning Hill, near Reading, Berkshire - late August, 1760

from Letter from Jeremy Bentham to his father, Jeremiah Bentham, 30 August 1760 , pages 14–15:

I arrived in good time at the inn on Tuesday morning, for I believe it was ¾ of an Hour after I came before they sat out: I believe I shall make you stare a little when you hear of one of the passengers: […] Mrs. Vincent, the famous singer at Vauxhall; who was going to pay a visit to her relations. […] I forgot to tell you, that Mrs. Vincent sang us God save the King, and Britons strike home in the machine [i.e. the stagecoach].
