Peter Hawker in Belfast - 20 July, 1834
from Journal entry, 20 July 1834, page 59:
Went up to the barracks, and spent the whole day with the officers, and never got back to my hotel till between one and two in the morning, as we sat seven hours at the mess. In the afternoon I marched to church with the regiment, this day being Sunday, and then took a drive to see the country. Much delighted with the 74th’s excellent kind fellows; capital mess, splendid band, and in every respect a regiment that I felt proud to have placed my son in.
