Julia Hawker et al. in Netherlands - 25 April, 1821
from Journal entry, 25 April 1821, page 213:
We arrived next at a beautifully fortified town, called Breda. We were then driven by a coachman instead of a postillion, and were no [l]onger tormented with the monkey-like absurdity of whip cracking peculiar to France and Belgium, but had the way cleared by a bugle horn, which, of course, was more effective and by no means annoying to our ears.
