Peter Hawker et al. in Longparish House, Longparish, Hampshire - 14 May, 1836

from Journal entry, 14 May 1836, page 104:

I indulged in an afternoon's ‘spree’ with Mr. W. Griesbach. We dragged four baskets of trout out of Mole’s Hole; shot as many rooks as we could tell what to do with, and ended the evening with a ‘flare up’ at the bats, and then a batch of duet playing.
